From Charlotte Five:
Are you more “bah humbug” than “Joy to the World” these days? Sometimes it takes a special event to get in a celebratory mood for the holidays. Visit one of these out-of-town places for a sparkly, joyful and magical experience (bet you’re feeling it already.)
Go for the day or make it a weekend getaway. Consider combining one of these events with an obligatory family gathering. It may take the edge off.
And many of these events are free, Ebenezer.
