I love visiting Colonial Williamsburg during the month of December. The first Sunday of December is the Lighting Ceremony. If you get the opportunity to come and visit it is a great time for the entire family. The fireworks are fantastic and you can see the fireworks from anywhere since they are shot off from 3 different locations. If you can’t make it for the Lighting Ceremony that’s ok; December is a great month to visit due to all the Colonial Christmas decorations. I love the simplicity of the decorations and get creative ideas for my home.

Be sure to wander down to Merchant Square and visit the Cheese shop for a snack and Wythe’s Candy for those who have a sweet tooth!

You're right--December is such a wonderful time to visit Colonial Williamsburg. No crowds, and the Lighting Ceremony (also called the Grand Illumination) is such a memorable experience! Whyte's is such a delicious temptation--they even have sugar free chocolates--or you can pop into Barnes & Noble on the main street to warm up for awhile...
