There are so many fun things to do in Houston during the holiday season. As school and work are winding down toward winter vacation, spend time as a family participating in various holiday activities. Whether you prefer to stay home or go out on the town, the important thing is that the family is together creating memories. Here are 3 fun things to do this holiday season.
Go See a Holiday Show
Give your kids the theatre experience of a lifetime by taking them to see a holiday show. Some of the holiday shows start as early as mid-November and last through the whole season. Holiday performances in the Houston area include “A Christmas Carol,” “The Nutcracker,” “Very Merry Pops,” “Sugar Plum Fantasy,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage.” Attending the show is a fun, valuable cultural experience for the whole family.
Does your family love holiday lights? Then you won’t want to miss Zoo Lights. For the eighth year, the Houston Zoo is getting transformed into a magical place full of over 2 million lights. The Zoo has over 15 miles of lighting! Spend the evening drinking hot chocolate as you and your family walk through this winter wonderland. Santa will even be there for a photo opportunity! Zoo Lights are a great way to see a lot of different holiday lights at once. Your kids will love being at the zoo at night and seeing it in a whole new way!
Decorate the House Together
Sometimes during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be relaxing to stay at home. One great at-home holiday activity is to get everyone involved in decorating the house. Put on holiday music and start decorating the tree! Put up lights outside and transform your home into a magical place! After a day of decorating, build a fire, drink hot chocolate, and get cozy! These types of holiday memories are priceless! Remember, there is no place like home for the holidays!
