There's nothing like the holiday season to bring family and tradition together. We've been discovering some new traditions to add to our holiday season repertoire.
First of all, the Nutcracker is a must-see during the season. This year, the Charlottesville ballet is re-staging Tchaikovsky's story at a new Culpeper location, the Culpeper Baptist Church, on December 10th. Your child 3-8 can even take a class with Clara! Tickets range from $12.00 to $30.00.
If you don't think "lights" for the holidays, you should get out more. Every year, the Northern Virginia Parks Authority does it up right by decorating Bull Run Park in Centreville with 2.5 miles of holiday lights, including a holiday village and carnival. Now through the first week of January. Here's a coupon for discounted entry!
Christmas trees are no bargain in Northern Virginia, but it may be worth your while to drive to Peper-mint Christmas Tree Farm, which is winding down its tree farm operations this season. They offer hundreds of their remaining spruce, pine, and fir trees at $25-35 each while supplies last.
The Warrenton Christmas Parade is sure to delight a family that values old-fashioned fun. Bring your unwrapped toy for the Toys for Tots program, and enjoy the Christmas tree lighting at 6 followed by the parade. December 2--that's just a couple of days away!
Not to mention, of course, the ambiance of one of America's Top Ten Small Towns, Culpeper, VA!
