  1. My boy just love decorating for Christmas. The one thing that they love the most is getting out their nutcrackers. It is so cute!!

  2. My grandsons love the lights. They also enjoy their Elf on a Shelf. It’s exciting for them to see where he is every morning.

  3. My kids love music and dancing and we do a lot of that during the holidays–from old time hymns to traditional Christmas songs we have a lot of smiles and laughter in our living room and living rooms of loved ones with multiple events, etc…!

  4. My son loves to write his Christmas list and to see the lights at Silver Dollar City!

  5. At Thanksgiving, my girls LOVE to see their cousins. They’ve been talking about it for weeks and they can’t wait!

  6. My children love listening to holiday music in the car and belting out holiday favorites (“All I want for Christmas” a la Maria C.). They also love to see all the lights and displays.
    Will also tweet about the show.

  7. My daughter is in love with our elf (on the shelf) Izzy. She thinks she’s so funny & loves when she’s there. When she goes back to the North Pole my daughter misses her & thinks about her all the time. Right now we are counting down the days until her return.
    I follow in IG, FB & Twitter

  8. My baby girl loves the lights on the Christmas tree. She just turned 3, so I am sure she will love even more and different things this year.

  9. My children love baking during the holidays. We just bought sprinkles today, in anticipation of Christmas cookies to come.

  10. My kids go nuts over watching the Polar Express with their grandpa and love love love looking at Christmas lights. They’ll scream out at each house.

  11. I would love to take my grandchildren to see the Symphony and the Snowman. I always love an opportunity to hear the Northwest Arkansas Symphony. if you have never seen one of their performances especially a holiday performance, truly wonderful!! I hope I am one of the lucky ones.

  12. We adopted a daughter from Colombia last year right before Christmas. We got home on the 22nd so she was not here for our usual Christmas traditions. This year her siblings are introducing her to advent season at church and all of their favorite movies. It will be our first true Christmas as a family.

  13. I think my kids like the lights the best. My husband puts up a HUGE Christmas tree of lights in our front yard each year. I think it’s taller than our house. I don’t know how he does it – I try not to watch. 🙂

    • I would love to win these tickets! What an adventure for my grandchildren & me!

  14. It would have to be SNOW!! And I have to admit, it makes me kind of giddy too! When it starts to fall and then accumulate, everyone is thrown out of their normal routines, and everything looks beautiful covered in a blanket of freshly fallen snow!! The best part of winter for our family. 🙂

  15. I just love all the movies!!! This is one of my all time favorite holiday shows! I didn’t even know it was playing here and I can’t get 2 tickets together for me & my daughter. 🙁 Winning these would be awesome–and we could take a friend for each of us!!
