Christmas in your travels

I had an idea come to me last night, and I have to admit it stemmed from a previous thread from Merrybells on a Christmas store in Pennsylvania. Now stay with me here, I was thinking, that since most (if not all) members here take vacations, work trips, travel, etc... wouldn't it be pretty cool if a folder was created titled something like "Christmas in your travels".

It could have a list in it by country, with sub folders by states, counties, etc... with links (sent in from all our members) to places of towns and such associated with the celebration of Christmas, Christmas shops, stores, etc...

So say I was to plan a vacation to orlando Florida, I could then go to that folder and see if there are any Christmas stores or such within that area and plan accordingly so that I can fit them into my schedule drive to those places...

What do you think???

That is an awesome idea! In Western Massachusetts we have the Yankee Candle Flagship Store in South Deerfield, MA, it has a large Christmas store where Santa is there yearround. we try to go there once a year, it is less than an hour away from here.


In Spencer, MA there is the Oakwood Farm Christmas Barn, I have never been there but it has a great reputation. http://www.christmas-barn.com/


In my town Monson, MA we have Garland's Christmas Store, it is a little store where all of the ornaments are made in house. No website but it is only open Mid-November through Christmas Eve.

In Lake George Village, NY there is a year round store right on the main strip called A Christmas to Remember. We go there multiple times when we go to Lake George. No website for them.

Here is a place I highly recommend to go to if someone visits Baltimore, (Hunt Valley) Maryland:

They have a huge Christmas store set up all year long...
