Christmas In Henry County
The holiday season, though one of the busiest times of the year, is a favorite for me and my family, as well as the Henry County community. Christmas is a time of celebration, gift-giving, and reuniting with loved ones, and there will be many local opportunities to do so this year in our community. Tree lighting celebrations, visits from Santa, Christmas tree sales, and Christmas caroling are just a few!
The much-loved Southern Belle Farm will be having a three week long holiday event, where you and your families can enjoy homemade cookies, fresh apple cider, friendly farm animals, and visits from Santa on the weekends. This “Farmstead Christmas” will take place from November 24 – December 17, so mark your calendars!
Yule Forest in Stockbridge, Georgia will help you find the perfect Christmas tree for your family this year. This local farm does offer pre-cut trees, but they also offer the experience to choose and cut your own tree from their field, as well as Christmas tree delivery. Their Christmas tree farm opens on Thanksgiving Day, and includes Leyland Cypress, Virginia Pines and Blue Ice Christmas Trees.
Enjoy the crisp fresh air at the Panola Mountain State Park Holiday Elf Hike on December 23. If your family follows the Elf On The Shelf tradition, this event is perfect for you. Panola invites your children to bring their elf, doll, or other stuffed animal along for their hike and following hot cocoa. To register for this event, please call 770-389-7801.
As you enjoy these holiday festivities, try to reflect on the meaning of Christmas and the joy it brings to our community, friends, and families. I wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas this year!
