Tis the Season for a Christmas in Washington

“It’s that time of year

When the world falls in love

Every song you hear seems to say

Merry Christmas, may your new years dream come true”

It’s that time of year again. In case you haven’t noticed, Starbucks has busted out their red Holiday cups and eggnog lattes, the unofficial “official” signifiers of the beginning of the Holiday season. Downtown Seattle, Macy’s has suspended their beloved Holiday Star on the corner of 4th and Pine and Westlake Plaza is cleaning the sidewalk in anticipation of the Holiday Carousel. Throughout the city you can see city workers perched on ladders stringing lights around trees trunks and storefront awnings. I even spotted a few handmade paper snowflakes taped to the windows of an apartment building.

Yes, the holidays are truly upon us and if you live in Washington State and love Christmas time as much I do, you’ll be thrilled to know there are some awesome events taking place this season. You will also be thrilled to know that I have put together 5 solid wardrobe ideas that are perfectly appropriate for these yuletide events.

It’s definitely a magical time of year! Full of lights, music and excitement. It is also a time to remember and rejoice in the birth of Jesus Christ, who came to earth to save us all! If that’s not something to get excited about, I don’t know what is!

Give generously, love unabashedly and be merry to all! Rejoice and enjoy everything this season has to offer!
