My husband has been reading a book that talks about traditions being vital to family dynamics. The other day, we asked our children what traditions are most important to them. Among them were Thanksgiving with the local sheriff deputies, Easter with the cousins, and Stone Mountain Christmas.
I have to agree that Stone Mountain Christmas is such a precious and fun time as a family. I love strolling down the walk and seeing all the Christmas lights, riding the sing-a-long train, and checking out fun shows while drinking hot chocolate and eating cinnamon bread. Of course there is always the parade and Snow Angel feature to top it all off. This year, a special guest and fireworks appeared before the parade! It was so magical!
My son and I have started a tradition where we try to copy the dancers as they go through the parade. He loves to dance and it’s a great time to break loose and have a little fun. We got a few funny looks, but mostly smiles and we danced.
This year we decided to watch a few more shows instead of just visiting the main attractions. We watched Christmas in the City, which was a musical production. It blew us away! Even our 3 year old had his eyes glued to the show! I definitely recommend taking the time to watch that show.
At the end of the night, our hearts grew 3 sizes and we made yet another wonderful memory at Stone Mountain Park with Stone Mountain Christmas. Our kids are getting older now and time is passing so quickly. I love knowing that my kids are storing these wonderful memories in their memory bank. We can hardly wait to go back again next year!
