“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.”
If you have been a follower of our blog for very long, you know that we love to pack our suitcase and set out on a new adventure! Whether across the US or across the world, we just love to travel! We have been very fortunate to travel to many places and see sights that were once only a dream! And with Christmas coming quickly upon us, I thought it would be neat to take a look at how some of my favorite places around the world celebrate! Each place you will see is one we have visited…but not all of them during the holidays. No matter the location, I think we can all agree that it is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. Let’s take a look at Christmas around our world!
New York City is definitely a fun place to visit at Christmas. I have made three trips to the “Big Apple” during the Holiday season and it never disappoints. Last year, Katy went and shared her trip here and here. The tree at Rockefeller Center is a NYC tradition!
One of the last scenes is a live nativity…complete with sheep, donkeys, and even a camel! They read scripture and performed “Hark the Herald Angels Sing!”…such a powerful moment! One of the lines in the show was “the greatest gift is not the one you go looking for, it’s the one that finds you”, and how true is that! The greatest gift ever given, Jesus, came to earth to seek and save us, the lost and sinful world.
We recently visited Boston and took you on a walking tour of historic Beacon Hill. I can only imagine seeing the beautiful homes decorated for Christmas.
Savannah is pretty anytime, but I am sure that Christmas is spectacular.
Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC hosts an annual National Gingerbread House Competition. It is scheduled for today.
Christmas at the Biltmore in Asheville is definitely a trip to make. Butch and I were there a few years ago and saw the estate dressed for the season and enjoyed the evening candlelight tour.
