Sometimes I think I’m more excited for the Holiday season than children are. And, yes, I’m old fashioned and LOVE doing traditional Christmas activities. I know it’s a little early, but I’m ready to start planning.

Finding the perfect tree

There’s nothing better than searching through a tree farm for that perfect Christmas tree, taking it home, decorating it with your nostalgic ornaments and smelling fresh pine in your living room. I know of the perfect place to find you’re perfect tree.

Fakes trees can’t compare to real trees, so make your way out to Flower Family Christmas Trees to find your tree this year. This farm, located in Kent, Ohio, will be open November 25th through December 23rd and will give you the opportunity to select and chop down your tree yourself.

Enjoying the snow

Like I said before, I truly am a child around Christmas, and there’s nothing I love more than playing in the snow. In one of my previous posts, I mentioned some parks in Kent to visit for some fresh air. As winter starts rolling in, you should visit these parks to enjoy the snowflakes. It’s fun to go to the park to build a snowman and see the beautiful icing on all of the trees.

Ice skating is also a must during the Holiday season. Akron, Ohio, which isn’t too far from Kent, has Ohio’s largest seasonal skating rink at Lock3. I suggest that anyone goes here with your loved ones for skating, sledding and light viewing!

Enjoying the traditions

I’m also a sucker for the classic Christmas stories. There are a few performances going on near Kent.

At the Akron Civic Theatre, “The Nutcracker” will be playing for multiple performances throughout November and December. I love going to see this ballet, it reminds me of times my grandparents took me to see it as a child. It makes for great memories with loved ones.

“The Christmas Carol Rag,” a version of the traditional “A Christmas Carol” will be playing near Kent, too. This performance will be held at the Solon Center for the Arts on December 9th. I’ve never seen this version, but I definitely am looking forward to it!

I’m so excited to start these Christmas activities! Until then, do you know of any other fun Holiday events going on in or around Kent?
