Chester County’s Best Events This December
Looking for something fun to do this holiday season in Chester County? Lights, shopping, festive drinks galore this month! If you are looking for fun, December holiday activities never disappoint. I’m all about a Santa Train (or two), and as always, I love to visit Longwood Gardens. It’s kind of a tradition. What traditions do you have this season? I’m always up for a new idea or two. You can always send me a message with your suggestions, I love to check out new places!
Here’s our list of the top things to do this December. Start new holiday traditions!
Keep Track of Santa LIVE this Christmas Eve
When I was little, I swear I saw Santa flying through the air every Christmas Eve. My Aunt Susan would point out Rudolph without fail. Nowadays, technology has become a bit more advanced than looking out the window. Tune in live on Facebook starting at 6 p.m. to keep track of that jolly ol’ elf and his sleigh.
