AN OLD TIME CHRISTMAS

If you have not been to Silver Dollar City's Old Time Christmas or if it has been awhile -- now is a great time to visit. While a single day can be a special time, two or three days is even better (there is so much to see and do).

Dress warm but don't worry about the cold. There are plenty of indoor heated shows and if you need to warm up in a hurry most of the shops are heated. You can pick up a hot cup of Wassail, or Hot Chocolate with marsh mellows and a candy cane throughout the park and there are plenty of places to eat a warm meal (the Mine Restaurant is a favorite).

Don't miss The Living Nativity, the Dickens Christmas Carol or the Silver Dollar Sing-Along Steam Train ride. Check the Show schedule for more events.

With so much going on it is easy to overlook what I think is a very special place in the park -- the McHaffie Homestead Cabin with the Homestead Pickers. With the warmth and comfort of a fireplace this one room cabin is turned into the Carnegie Hall of the Ozarks. You will enjoy some very special music from traditional Christmas songs to new songs like 'Christmas In The Holler' (at least it was new to me) and fun for the kids (did you know there are two more reindeers than the original nine or that Ole Blue likes to sing Christmas Carols). On occasion special guests are invited to sing or play in what can only be described as inspirational. At 7:00 p.m. Uncle Gene visits the cabin to tell a story about the Night After Christmas. These shows are as different as snowflakes -- no two are the same. The show times are listed on the blackboard outside the cabin. Make sure to arrive at the cabin at least 30 minutes early to get a seat.

Whatever you choose to do make sure to save time to enjoy the over four million lights with family and/or friends.




A MATTER OF JOY

It is a matter of joy to think that God has sent the message of grace to so many millions,
by the wide spread of his gospel.
