Black Friday conjurs up visions of throngs of people pushing, shoving, tugging, and cajoling their way to the head of the crowds or to be first in line to pay for their hard-fought bargains. Aside from all that chaos though, it also marks the beginning of the season to be merry, be it Hanukkah, Christmas or Kwanzaa, and for the most part ignites the holiday spirit in many folks.
Get-packin.com wants to help kick-start the holiday spirit as well, but, our contribution is to help you find fun places to go, especially with the family. So, pull up your easy chair, bring the whole gang in, and check out all these holiday events, like “A Very Furry Christmas” at Sesame Place, located in Langhorne, PA., about 30 minutes from Philadelphia and 90 minutes south of New York City.
The Big Apple heads to music city, where “A Country Christmas” in Nashville, TN., finds the New York City Rockettes kicking up their heels at the Grand Ole Opry House, or brrrrr, take a tour of ICE, featuring “DreamWorks’ Shrek the Halls” – taking place at the Opryland Events Center.
Ahhh, sunny Florida where there are activities galore to be found in the greater Orlando area, or in Miami you’ll find what’s touted to be the “world’s largest Christmas theme park and free carnival in Santa’s Enchanted Forest.
Other fun places to be this holiday season include the North Pole, in New York’s Adirondacks, about 12 miles from Lake Placid.
How about a green Christmas, with a twist, like a Christmas tree made out of 245,000 green Lego DUPLO bricks in Legoland during their ‘holiday snowdays’.
The most fun of all just might be a train ride for the whole family . . . . . . . .
