This week I am lucky to have Margarita from Downshifting Pro sharing her stories about their family’s bi-cultural traditions mixing Christmas in Canada and Colombia. With her Colombian heritage and her husband’s Canadian roots, they have come together to make new traditions for their family. It’s so interesting to see the similarities and differences between Christmas in the two cultures and see how they incorporate these traditions in their holiday celebrations. I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I do and thanks Margarita for sharing in our Holiday Celebrations Around the World Series!
London is one of those fabulous cities I long to return to again and again, so I’m thrilled to have Anna from Four Kids One Mom Guide to London sharing the inside scoop on a traditional Christmas in London! As part of our Holiday Celebrations Around the World, we’re exploring the holidays in different countries. I’m enjoying learning about new cultures and traditions every week and I hope you are too!
Best Holiday Events in Chicago Chicago is one of the best cities to visit during the holiday season. The holidays begin in earnest in Chicago with the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival at the end of November. There is a spectacular night time tree lighting parade down Michigan Avenue, with Mickey and Minnie serving as the Grand Marshalls, complete with floats, balloons, and marvelous marching bands. The ceremony concludes with a stunning fireworks display above the Chicago River. The holidays are a wonderful time to find yourself in the city of Chicago and its suburbs because the city puts forward its most dazzling display of entertainment for locals and tourists alike.
