I’ve never been huge on Christmas Spirit. Never wanted to go carrolling, or decorate the outside of the house (too much work!) and eggnog…. nooooooooooooooooooooo! But there’s something about Busch Gardens Christmas Town that makes me feel like Scrooge at the end of A Christmas Carol.
I’m decking halls left and right, singing along with holiday tunes…. but still not considering eggnog. Pass the hot chocolate, please!
From the (over) 8 million lights (the biggest display in North America!), to seeing Santa in his workshop, to the AMAZING shows (if you don’t go see Scrooge No More, you are seriously missing out), the refillable hot chocolate mugs, merry food and drinks (yes, those kinds!) to the magic of the Oh Tannenbaum tree in Oktoberfest, Christmas Town has always been a family favorite for us, and this year, there’s even more Christmas magic to experience!
This season at Christmas Town, you have the opportunity to visit Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland. It’s like walking into your childhood!
Stroll through Holiday Hills (previously known as Festa Italia) and stop in to take pictures with Rudolph, Clarice & friends like Bumble, Yukon & Cornelius!
For the little ones, for the first time ever, Sesame Street Forest of Fun is open for Christmas Town and decked out for the holidays! Bring them to see the colorful lights & meet their favorite Sesame Street characters. Grover’s Alpine Express is open, and you can take them on Prince Elmo’s Spire for a view of the lights from up high (but not as high as Nacht Tower!)
The lights, decorations, food & cheer aren’t the only things to enjoy, though! This year, there is en expanded ride lineup for the thrill seeking folks- including Verbolten & Tempesto, along with 20 other rides around the park!
Don’t take MY word for how fun Christmas Town is this year– take my tickets! Actually, take FOUR! Busch Gardens was kind enough to give me a family 4 pack to give away to one of you!

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
For any parent who's ever had a kid who thinks they're more grown up than they are... and proves themselves wrong-- this story is for you holdinholden.com/2017/12/10-g…
