This weekend is looking up. Sure, there will still be a chill in the air, but the wet feeling is going to be zippo. All the conditions mean that it will be a perfect time to put on that fabulous wrap-around scarf and woolly hat and head to the Dallas Arboretum for The 12 Days of Christmas.
It’s a bit like the way old days, when families would drive downtown and check out the Neiman’s store windows. Only in this case, you are able to get some exercise strolling the grounds, taking photos and enjoying the countdown to Christmas. Just think how adorable those photos will look on Facebook.
Each of the gazebos is a treat for the eyes no matter what age you are. And to complete the mood, there is a different holiday tune at each stop.
Afterwards, overdose on hot chocolate and debate which of the “days” was your fav. Was it the 10 lords a-leaping? Or, perhaps it was the eight maids trying to milk those plump cows? But then the 11 pipers piping in this kilts were awful adorable.
And if you have an extra thank you note in your box of stationery, send it to AmegyBank for being the presenting sponsor.
