The Christmas holidays are my favorite! Last year we went away on a log cabin retreat so that we could enjoy the snowy mountains and be at one with nature whilst spending precious time with our family. We got to drink hot cocoa, open presents, and even see a show whilst at the resort. It was amazing! So much so, I wanted to replicate that in some way this year and I found the perfect way how. It wasn’t quite the same but it was still so much fun. Last week, we got to go to Knott’s Merry Farm to experience some of the magic and splendor of the holiday season. From now until January 7th, Knott’s Merry Farm is such a fun place to create holiday memories as the park is transformed into a Christmas wonderland with amazing decor, seasonal treats, and entertaining holiday shows.
Knott’s Merry Farm’s Special Holiday Shows
Some of the special shows just for the holidays are:
- Holiday Ice Show featuring Snoopy & the Peanuts gang
- Nightly tree lighting ceremony
- The Christmas Carol
- A Peanuts Guide to Christmas
Santa’s Christmas Cabin
Don’t forget to visit Santa’s Christmas Cabin to see Santa and take a picture with him. You can also treat yourself to a variety of holiday food items such as freshly baked cookies and milk, crepes, chocolate dipped cheesecake on a stick , seasonal craft beers, hot chocolate and marshmallows, hot spiced holiday wine and handmade tamales. We picked up some candied nuts which were so tasty warm!
New for 2018 is the Christmas Pizza- a dish that combines all the flavors of a holiday meal into one perfect bite! It’s basically a pizza topped with sliced turkey, stuffing, gravy and sweet cranberry sauce. We didn’t get to try it but it looked and sounded delicious!
One of my favorite things was Ghost Town’s Christmas Crafts Village where dozens of local artisans are selling their unique crafts and gifts. I loved walking through the streets and browsing all the different gifts and crafts that were available.
As you stroll through Ghost Town, you’ll also see the Calico Carolers walking by and singing some of your favorite Christmas carols.
Every night at Ghost Town as it twinkles brightly with holiday lights, you’ll get to experience the sights and sounds of the holiday season during the Snow and Glow. It definitely puts you in the holiday spirit!
Have you been to Knott’s Merry Farm? It’s definitely something you must do in Orange County to make memories and enjoy the holidays! You can even get season passes which start at only $92! This would make a great Christmas present which can be enjoyed all year long! Don’t miss out on Knott’s Merry Farm from now until January 7th!
