25 Holiday Ideas in 25 Days
Bundle up your family and head outdoors to a holiday festival. Dozens of Midwest towns— including Macomb, Illinois; Lafayette, Indiana; Albia, Iowa; Manistee, Michigan; Garrison, North Dakota; Cambridge, Ohio; and Ripon and Stoughton, Wisconsin— hold annual festivals with a Dickens theme. Admire the decorations from a blanket-wrapped seat in a horse-drawn carriage. Wave to strolling carolers decked in period costumes. Warm your insides with hot cider and cocoa. Tour historic homes dressed tastefully for the holidays. Just a few hours around this living history will show your family why many of these centuries-old traditions have endured.
