As the Christmas holiday season approaches, it’s never too early to at least plan to get in the spirit, especially if you travel.
Start with the 26th annual National Gingerbread House Competition at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. It’s also a great tour of more gingerbread houses than you can imagine. It starts on November 25th.
Then, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, there’s the annual Farolito Walk that starts on December 24th. Farolitos are small, sand-filled bags with candles.
And my favorite is on December 8th in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. That’s when visitors can gather at Stone Row Pub and Eatery in their ugliest Christmas sweaters for a chance to win a prize. You know you have one!
