Rekindle Your Holiday Spirit in Fredericksburg NOV 04 2018
The simple joys of the Christmas Season can be found in time-honored traditions. Decking the halls, driving through twinkling towns, decorating cookies, singing Christmas carols, reliving the Christmas Story and spending time with loved ones. Here are 5 ways to rekindle your holiday spirit this season:
- Plan some time to visit festive Fredericksburg with lights twinkling merrily from Thanksgiving weekend through January 6. Your children, grandchildren, or even your inner child will be awed by the beauty and simplicity of lights against a dark evening sky.
- Bring the family to the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site on Sunday, December 16, for Christmas caroling and the 49th Annual LBJ Tree Lighting. Then step back in time at the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm to decorate German cookies and make candles and wreaths amid glowing lanterns and a traditional candlelit German Christmas tree.
- Celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. Drive or take a wagon ride through The Christmas Journey, a live presentation of the biblical Christmas Story at Bethany Lutheran Church on Friday and Saturday, December 14 and 15. In the quietude of early evening, view Bible verses associated with that Holy Night come to life with live characters and animals, magnificent backgrounds and soft Christmas music.
- In Fredericksburg, not everything closes on Christmas Day. Continue the holiday cheer with a hike up Enchanted Rock or a stroll through Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, or take the kids for some playtime at the Marktplatz playground.
