It is impossible to deny… we’re creeping closer to the holidays with every passing day!
The snow this week was a pretty clear reminder that we are on the cusp of winter and holiday EVERYTHING, wasn’t it? Let’s talk about Thanksgiving first… you’re probably figuring out if you need to order a turkey for the big day or where you can dine out on the actual day in Champaign-Urbana. Want to run a turkey trot? There are some happening on Thanksgiving, but Central High School Interact Club has one this weekend you can do, too. Get in those steps!
Now. Regardless of how you feel about Christmas-before-Thanksgiving chatter, it’s important you know that here at chambanamoms.com we’ve been busy getting that winter holiday content ready for you to review. Whether you plan on partaking these next couple weeks or not, there are LOTS of holiday activities happening already.
Holiday parades begin this weekend with the Night of Lights Parade in Danville. Next weekend there will be even more. We’ve put together this year’s holiday bucket list for you to consider as you make your plans through the new year and winter break. And last but certainly not least, the jolly man in red is going to start popping up in town this weekend beginning with Mansfield Winterfest. Feeling festive yet?
Don’t forget that Frozen 2 is coming out on November 22 and there are a number of Frozen events happening in Champaign-Urbana leading up to and through the big release. Find ’em all here!
