Looking for something different this Christmas season?


If you have been there and done that with the standard markets, bazaars, tree lightings, etc. this holiday season. Here are two different options for your family activity.

Tired of waiting in those long lines at the mall for your families’ photo with Santa? Join the family at Country Farm and Home in Pittsboro for a Santa celebration for the whole family! Country Farm and Home is a family owned feed and seed business in Pittsboro, where you can find your garden products or your horse feed. Their December 16th celebration includes complimentary cocoa, apple cider, & homemade cookies as well as songs and stories by the big guy in red. From 10-1pm this free event provides an unconventional way to get your kids photo with Santa- but bring your own camera!



If you aren’t worried about seeing Santa this season you can check out the NC Chinese Lantern Festival in Cary.  You can find this amazing annual event at the Booth Amphitheatre in Cary. It runs from December through January 14th. It’s open every day except Mondays, although it is open on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day (which are Mondays.) The hours are 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
