Today, I woke up with Christmas in my heart. I’m counting down the days until we can start putting up Christmas decorations. Realistically, I almost did it yesterday, but I’m not TOTALLY insane. I know I should wait until at least after Thanksgiving.
If you’re like me and just DYING to start celebrating this great Season, make sure to check out the Houston 12 Days of Arthur Christmas Events. Tons of great activities in tons of great places! If you attend and take a picture, make sure to send it to me so I can post right here at Momma Findings. We missed the Tree Lighting, but MAN there are STILL so many events in the works over the next 10 days.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Bringing the spirit of the season early to Houstonians, Aardman and Sony Pictures Animation will be hosting the “12 Days of Arthur Christmas” events throughout the Houston area.
Starting with the Houston Galleria Ice Spectacular on November 12th and ending with Santa’s Snow Day at Edwards Grand Palace on November 23rd, guests will merry as they participate in the multitude of festivities which includes Arthur lighting the Galleria Christmas tree, an elf invasion at Discovery Green’s FUNonmenal Family Festival, story time and meet-and-greet with Santa, winter wonderland experience at the Downtown Aquarium and a rockin’ holiday party at the Children’s Museum of Houston.
Ever wonder how Santa delivers 2 billion presents in one night? “Arthur Christmas” answers the question… and Aardman and Sony Pictures Animation are helping local residents find their holiday spirit.
