Again, the holiday season, no matter what you celebrate, is a time for connection and joy and living life to the fullest. It’s a time of spending time with those you love, with your blood family and your chosen family, and pursuing passion as best you can.
Here are three more things to do in the capital this holiday season!
1. Six Flags
Nov 19 – Jan 2
Ever thought about spending your holiday on a coaster? No? Well, may be you should. This year, for the first time in history, Six Flags is opening for the holiday season.
They’re offering light shows, stunts, singing, and all the other magical performances that you can imagine. Rides will be open too, which is honestly most exciting to me. Who doesn’t want to blast down a coaster in subzero temperatures?
2. Mount Vernon
Dec 1 – Jan 1
Under the watchful eye of Mother Moon Mount Vernon comes alive!
Candlelight tours showcase the best of the best of those working Mount Vernon in the holidays, like interpreters and characters, all in period dress, sharing with you how the first First Family celebrated the holidays.
So much to do—so much to see. Drop by the first president’s house and home this holiday season!
3. Gingerbread Class
Dec 3 – Dec 4
Okay, this one is a bit out of nowhere. Many people (I am one of them) build gingerbread houses during the holiday season, but the National Building Museum is offering something special this year.
Everyone who takes part in the $75 class is given instructions on how to construct a house with a 12-by-17-inch A-frame of construction-grade gingerbread dough. I’ve seen this dough before, and it’s just as magical as it sounds!
Stop by and build!
No matter what you do this holiday season in Washington, DC, no matter what you celebrate—just have a good time. Enjoy yourself and learn something new. Make a friend. Spread the love and be considerate of others.
This is the time of passion! 🙂
