More than boxes and bows…
Amid the search to find the perfect holiday gifts, it’s easy to lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas. We secretly hope that each perfectly wrapped present will contain the spirit of the season. We try to capture the wonder and delight of children, the sense of community in sharing a holiday meal and the timeless treasure of spending time with those you care about, even though the meaning of Christmas can’t be tied up in boxes and bows.
If you’re looking to reclaim the joy of the holiday, we know the best place in Vermont. The 34th Annual Christmas in Weston celebration! Join us this year on Saturday December 1 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The town of Weston, VT is the perfect setting for an old fashioned Christmas in Vermont. They do it up right with a day long celebration full of traditional, fun, free events and activities for all ages.
Celebration comes early at Christmas in Weston…
Stroll around the snow-covered green and stop to enjoy traditional holiday activities like cookie decorating and crafts. Listen to a reading of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol or listen to the jingle of sleigh-bells while you ride the horse-drawn wagon.
Be sure to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus inside The Vermont Country Store. There’s never a fee for children and adults to share their Christmas wishes, or to capture the memory in personal photos.
Savor the flavor of the holidays at The Bryant House Restaurant with a hearty lunch. If you’d rather explore while you eat, enjoy food stands run by the Weston Fire Department, the Little School and the Weston Women’s Club.
Be sure to linger until the late afternoon, long enough to watch Santa arrive at the village green. Once the beautiful tree is lit, join in signing a spirited round of Christmas carols
Share the joy…
The festive mood is contagious, as is the spirit of community and caring, which can be felt by everyone there. In fact, community is at the center of Christmas in Weston. Each year, the event donates proceeds to a local non-profit organization. This year, the beneficiary is Just Neighbors, an all-volunteer agency providing assistance for basic living needs to people in Weston and nearby mountain towns. Just Neighbors volunteers will be on hand at the Weston Village Green. Feel free to chat with them and learn more about this important community organization.
It’s a day of simple pleasures that will restore your spirit for the season. Christmas in Weston will put you in the right mindset to enjoy this Christmas in its truest sense and make this one a holiday to remember!
