Giving Tuesday with Coffee!

As we enter the cheerful season, many of the surrounding cities will be offering their own city wide Christmas celebrations. I have compiled a lists of a few of them to help you find a fun one to attend.

All of the details were found by simply going to the website for the city chosen. Most of them have their upcoming Christmas events listed right on the front page! So if I don’t include one that is local to you, it should be a gingersnap to find one that is!

Many of these include fun activities, craft booths, and of course the big guy, Santa!

*Now I have to end this list by saying, if you  want one really great spot to go with a season full of Christmas fun, then you must visit the Christmas Capital of Texas! Grapevine, Texas!! There you can simply enjoy the amazing light displays as you stroll downtown. Or there are many free and pay to enter options of spectacular activities! https://www.grapevinetexasusa.com/christmas-capital-of-texas/

I really hope this list does a great job of getting you started on planning your holiday season kick off! I tried to spread them across DFW so everyone can find one for them! If you have a favorite celebration, that isn’t listed, we would love to know about it!! My personal favorite is the Heritage Park Christmas in Euless, it has my favorite ‘Santa visit’ situation!!

While you are out and about with busy Christmas fun, here is a great tortilla soup recipe to leave in the Crockpot and come home to! https://safesolutions.us/safe-solutions-scratch-cookin-sunday-tortilla-soup/
