Favorite Christmas Activities In Louisville KY

Christmas, my favorite holiday. I have to admit, my four year old daughter was so excited about Christmas this year that she begged me to put up our tree and decorations early. Usually I'm a stickler for waiting to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but she somehow talked me into it. I wonder if it was her excitement, her sweet little voice, or the way she folded her hands while she begged me to decorate early. Maybe it was a combination of all three, but I'm so glad I did, and now I'm in the Christmas spirit as much as she is! This year Christmas for our family is going to be so fun! Addison is at such a fun age where she's enjoying all the fun activities around town and Evelyn is just enamored with all the lights. Of course I started thinking about all the fun things to do around Louisville at Christmas and a long list was not hard to compile! Louisville always has such fun activities for kids around the holidays and so I thought I would share a few of them with you incase you're looking for something fun to do with your family and loved ones.

-One of my favorite things to do around Louisville this time of year is to visit the Galt House for their annual Kalightoscope experience. I first learned about this event when I took my class on a field trip to it a few years back. It's an amazing display of lights that include everything from Santa and the reindeer to penguins. This event has really grown over the years and it now includes a walk through elf town, a meeting with an ice princess, a meeting with Santa where you get a free digital download of the picture that's taken and even a train ride. Another good thing about this event is that it doesn't end until January, so if you can't make it before Christmas, there's time to visit afterward! It's a must do in my opinion!

-The Kentucky Center for the Arts always offers The Nutcracker in December but my oldest daughter could not sit for that long....
