Making Your Own Christmas Tradition
Do you have a special Christmas or holiday tradition that you and your family celebrate every year? Here's how other families and communities have created traditions to enjoy year after year. There's Santa, who has been taking part in the Johnsons' Christmas Eve celebration for the past 64 years, and Frosty the Snowman, who serves as the Gibsons' Christmas tree each year. And communities throughout Kentucky also have special traditions, such as The Living Christmas Tree in Bowling Green or Russell's Illumination Celebration.
Holiday Activities
If you don't have your own holiday tradition, use our extensive listing of holiday activities being held throughout Kentucky and pick a special event to attend this year with your family. Listings include activities for: Community Celebrations/Parades; Holiday Tours; Music & Shows; Crafts & Feasts; Twinkling Lights
