Starting December 20, 2017

"May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope; The spirit of Christmas which is peace; The heart of Christmas which is love." -   Ada V. Hendricks 

As the year winds down, it's a week to enjoy family and friends, with gatherings at home or out and about. Your options abound, especially if you have that overly ornate - dare we say ugly? - holiday sweater that you're eager to wear, as there are plenty of Ugly Sweater parties this weekend. Still don't have your tree? Click here! And there's lots more too, so read on! As you celebrate this season - whether it's Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day or even Festivus - we at the Explore Warren County Tourism Partnership (that's our headquarters in the county government's Wayne Dumont, Jr. Administration Building pictured) wish you a most joyous holiday, and Happy Wanderings!
