Can you believe it’s December already? That means Christmas is just around the corner! Before the holiday season hits and brings with it all that craziness, take a moment to look over some of these upcoming events and decide if you want to attend any of them. Houston has a lot to offer during the holidays, and while you’ll probably be too busy to do everything, you should be able to fit a few events into your busy schedule.
The Houston Zoo will light up with thousands of Christmas lights. You and your family can take a tour through this magical wonderland and check out some amazing decorations, sing carols, and drink hot cocoa.
One Christmas tradition is seeing the Nutcracker ballet. While some people prefer to watch the ballet on TV, there really is nothing like seeing it performed live. There are several different performances going on in Houston this month. In attrition to the Nutcracker, there are other holiday performances, plays, and recitals.
If you enjoy seeing holiday displays, go driving around Houston. Load the family up in the car, pack some snacks, and crank up the Christmas carols on the radio. There are many great festival displays in the area. If you want to do a little walking, you might want to take the Heritage Society’s Annual Candlelight Tour in the Park. While you will have to walk in the cold instead of riding in the warm car, it’s certainly worth it. The tour features some of Houston’s oldest buildings decorated in the traditional 19th century holiday décor, plus there’s live music and Santa!
