It is finally winter in Houston. On Thursday it was a warm 82 and I came home from work and put on shorts to walk my dogs. On Saturday, it was 34 at 7:00 am when I again walked my dogs. The very definition of winter in Houston. For many, this is their favorite time of year. The air is crisp, the leaves are crunchy, and we can finally break out the blankets and hot chocolate, in the evening. During the day, we wear shorts and run the air conditioner.
My next post will return to improving your SEO, but I thought today I would focus on fall festivals and traditions we can celebrate around Houston.
Weekends in November: My 2 daughters are deep into theater at K-Park High school, and every year, they look forward to the Renaissance festival. This is a great opportunity to dress up and get a feel for “ye ole’ past”!
November 18 – January 15th: While many of the animals are sleeping, the zoo itself come alive with over 15 miles of LED lights. Added this year is a 33 foot lighted and decorated. Perfect for your Christmas selfie. And don’t forget your perfect cup of coco.
November 20-December 28th: A Christmas classic and a Houston theater tradition. Take in a presentation of the Christmas ghost story that reminds Ebenezer Scrooge of the joys in life.
November 25- December 27th: Another Christmas Classic, the Houston Ballet annually performs The Nutcracker to the delight of all children. Watch as the brave Nutcracker battles with the evil Mouse King, and then travel with Clara to the Land of the Sweets where she is reunited with her prince.
December 10-11: Tour historic decorated homes, interact with historic characters and 19th century crafters, participate in children’s activities in Santa’s Workshop, and hear stories of Houston’s past residents, cultures and communities.
December 2-4: Galveston dresses up in Victorian era Garb and celebrates the ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future.
These are just a few of my families’ favorites. During this holiday season, I hope you find the time to celebrate with your families. From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.
