Date Night Idea: Go See a Tree Lighting

Date Night Idea: Go See a Tree Lighting

It's getting to be about that time when people are pulling out their Christmas decor, and usually the day or weekend after Thanksgiving a lot of towns have a tree lighting of some sort to kick things off. What better way to kick off your own festivities than to head out to one for a fun date?! Swing by a coffee shop beforehand to get some hot cocoa, and then duck into some nearby shops afterward to do a little shopping and warm up a bit.

If you are in Minnesota, here are a few tree lightings I found. To check out all of the holiday related events around Minnesota, check out Explore Minnesota. If you go to Fairs & Festivals, you can search for Christmas, Holiday, or Lights to see what's going on near you.
