The holiday season has officially begun! With Thanksgiving over and Christmas music on the radio, it’s clear- time to get out your eggnog and deck the halls. With winter break quickly approaching, many of us are in need of things to do! Luckily, the C-U area is filled with holiday fun for the whole family. Here are a couple of my personal favorites.
One of the more awe-inspiring activities will be found just 20 minutes outside of Champaign. At Hardy’s Reindeer Ranch in Rantoul, visitors can pick out a Christmas tree, go through the Christmas corn maze, and even see real reindeer! If you’re looking for something in town, the C-U Ballet’s annual production of The Nutcracker is sure to please. December 4-7 at the Krannert Center in Urbana, this is one magical show that can’t be missed!
All through the month of December, the C-U will be full of family fun, so whether you are looking to see Santa’s favorite animals, or be transported to a world of sugar plum fairies and rose queens, the options are endless this holiday season.
