I thought it might be a nifty idea to share some of the things we do to celebrate Christmas in different geographic areas. Post a pic and/or a description of the fun/sentimental/devout traditions or ways you celebrate Christmas.
Here in Oklahoma we do "Downtown in December." There's ice skating and snow tube rides, plenty of food and shopping. One of my favorite parts are the free water taxi rides along the Bricktown Canal.
Oklahoma City's Downtown in December began in 2002 as Bricktown and the rest of the downtown area blossomed. The early years had modest budgets, and 2005 saw one of over $1 million.
2006's Downtown in December will last just over a month, from November 24th to January 1st, and will feature such exciting festivities as outdoor ice skating, water taxi's along the Bricktown Canal, the Botanical Gardens, snow tubing rides, plenty of great shopping and food as well as beautiful lighting and decorative displays.
