Most of my friends kick off the Christmas Holiday Season on November 1st. They decorate at least 3 Christmas trees, display all of their shiny and glittery trinkets, wrap everything in garland, and you can smell the scent of pine needles, cookies, and candy canes in the air.
My family, on the other hand, kicks off the season with an Atlanta Holiday Tradition:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer ™ at Center For Puppetry Arts
My kids. ok WE, love, love, love, this show! The message of being different and letting what makes you different be your way to shine (literally in Rudolph’s case) is a message that I want to reinforce. Attending this show is an easy and fun way to do so.
