A long time ago my family began a new and exciting Christmas tradition. Just a few weeks before the holiday, we decided to spend a three-day weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC. We spent all day at local retail shops looking for Christmas gifts — and then doing our best to hide them from each other in a shared vehicle — and all night exploring the beautiful Christmas light displays and events.

That tradition continued for many years, but as the siblings grew older and our schedules more complex, the tradition eventually came to an end. That’s when I decided to adapt it for my work as a travel blogger.

I came up with the idea to explore and write an annual Christmas Holiday Season Travel Guide. Each year, I try to visit a destination to explore local shopping and dining, Christmas light displays and events, and discover the spirit of the holiday season at that destination. I would write a travel guide about how others could discover Christmas at these destinations. The hope would be to inspire people to travel to a particular destination to experience a bit of Christmas before heading home to spend the time with family.

Will you start your own tradition this year?
