Five Ways to Enjoy Woodland This Holiday Season

Have you ever wanted to just STOP during the holiday season?  Stop shopping, stop rushing, and maybe just stop for a breather?  My hand is raised high at all of these.  It can be easy to lose sight of what the holidays mean to you, personally.  I know I struggle with this every year and that’s why I pulled together Five Ways to Enjoy Woodland This Holiday Season.  All I have to do is show up!  Each event is designed, by local associations or businesses, to bring the holiday spirit to our community.  Join in and enjoy the season with your fellow Woodlanders, I don’t think you’ll regret it.

If you know of other holiday events, please share it in the comments section below.  Enjoy.

Christmas Tree Lighting | Friday 12/4 at 6:00 pm | Heritage Plaza, Second and Main Streets – $5 carriage rides, roasted chestnuts, holiday caroling and more.  This is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season, especially with the community.
