The Dickens’ Christmas Festival is BACK!

December is one of those times of year when memories of when I was a little girl come flooding back.

Traditions like caroling at the rest home,  running through the snow in our swimsuits and jumping into our hot tub, carriage rides, amazing food, and…The Dickens’ Christmas Festival.  This year I will finally be able to share this memory with my little ones.

If there is one thing you do to bring in the spirit of Christmas, make sure it is visitng Merry Olde England. Costumed townsfolk walk the streets singing and dancing and quaint olde English shops beckon, offering Christmas decorations and treasures.  Tempting foods are everywhere, cinnamon buns, soup in a bun, authentic  Fish ‘n Chips, not to mention English Toffee, homemade candies, caramel, and my favorite fudge.  Outdoors, the smell of roasting chestnuts fills the chilly air while you enjoy a FREE horsedrawn carriage ride.

Every evening, a musical mini-production of  Scrooge and Oliver Twist will be performed on Stage.

And don’t forget to visit Father Christmas!

I love taking pictures of my little ones, the capturing of those daily memories that I know I will soon forget.

Christmas in China

When we moved our little family to China last fall, one of the last things I was expecting to see, come December, were Christmas trees.
