A Little Yule Cheer, Day 2: Fire and Ice at Longwood Gardens

My daughter, Julia, and I took a quick trip to Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square, PA) this past weekend to celebrate the start of the Christmas season. Even though opportunities where everywhere, I took very few photos. Instead, I just relished the time with Julia as we wandered through the conservatory and grounds. It was chilly enough to feel like Christmastime, but still warm enough to enjoy a slice of pizza outside and walk through the gardens without turning into a popsicle. The theme this year is fire and ice, as you could probably guess from the only three photo opportunities I couldn’t resist. Julia kept using the word “magical” as we moved from one display to the next and I agree. It was a magical way to officially begin Christmas 2021.

Do you do anything special to mark the start of your holiday season? Please share!
