Christmas is my favorite time of the year! The decorations, the snow and, it seems to put people in such a great mood. Unless you've waited until the last minute to do some Christmas shopping. I didn't have a snowy Christmas until I moved to Nebraska in 2010 and it changed the way I enjoy Christmas.

From what I've heard there are some great communities here in the Treasure Valley that get into the Christmas spirit.

But where is the best town for Christmas?

There's a place that continues to show up on every list "Best Christmas Towns" and that place happens to be a 7-hour drive or short flight to Leavenworth, Washington. 

Leavenworth is known for its Bavarian-styled village located in the Cascade Mountains, and it offers activities all year round.

November 25th Leavenworth turns into The Village of Lights, ChrismastownThey actually start decorating for Christmas on the third Monday of October, hanging half a million lights, and you can keep track of their progress online with a live webcam.

This town goes all out for Christmas and being so close, I would love to be able to spend a couple of days enjoying what this community has to offer for all of those who travel through.
