Sometimes, with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress and to-do lists. We’ve all been there. But, as we inch closer towards the end of the year, it’s time for us all to slow down and remember what this season really is all about.

Whether you’re staying close to home, or traveling across the country, we hope you have a magical time with friends and family. We wish for your days to be filled with fun games, delicious meals around the table, and plenty of quality time with the ones you love.

If you are sticking around the Jacksonville, North Carolina, area, then make sure to check out one of the many wonderful events throughout our city to help get you in the holiday mood!

One of our favorites is Jacksonville Winter Wonderland. Happening every day through December 23, this event is the perfect spot for your little ones to say hello to Santa and his elves. They can get their pictures taken with Santa, and even write and hand deliver a letter to him.
