As the familiar song goes, the Christmas season is “the most wonderful time of the year.” It can also be one of the busiest, and a time when it’s all too easy to get caught up in the shopping, the traffic, the parties. The frenzy often leaves us feeling less than… well… wonderful.
But this season can be different. Christmas in Huntsville is a website designed to help you find ways to take a break from the rush and give the most priceless of gifts: memories with friends and family that will last a lifetime.
We invite you to make new traditions this Christmas. Huntsville has so much to offer this time of year, and many of the area’s most popular activities are free. On this website you’ll find lots of ways to create memories and build traditions this holiday season.
Under Events and Activities, learn more about some Huntsville’s most beloved traditions, from the glittery forest and Nativity at Tinsel Trail, a centuries-old tradition. There’s ice skating in Big Spring Park, and many musical events to delight young and old alike. There’s even a chance to jog away some holiday calories while raising money for the Blount Hospitality House.
In the Giving Back section of the website, you’ll find lots of ways to show those less fortunate that you care. From raking a senior’s leaves to reading with a child, you’ll feel the Christmas spirit by helping someone else.
You’re also invited to participate in one of the First Baptist Church Christmas Eve services (There is a 3:00 service for families with Children and a 5:00 Candlelight service), or join with your local congregation. After all the gifts are wrapped and cards are sent, the world slows down to wait for the Savior. If you haven’t attended a Christmas Eve service in recent years – or if you’ve never attended one – we hope you’ll make a Christmas Eve service a new tradition starting this year. If you have questions, or would like more information about our Christmas Eve services, go to our contact form.
We want to see what traditions you and your family are enjoying this year – so get in touch with us! Send us your stories via the Contact Us form on this website. And tag #ChristmasinHuntsville on your own social media.
