Traditions bring up fond memories of time spent with family and friends. They remind us that we need to a break from our hectic schedules and really enjoy the little things in life. They are reassuring and bring families closer together while doing things like eating roasted turkey (or maybe tofurkey!) and dressing, baking pumpkin pie, reading The Night Before Christmas, giving and receiving presents, baking cookies just for Santa and the elves or dusting off the box that holds the magical Christmas village.

Kathy Lee from Cleveland, TN says, “My family and I love to visit Rock City’s Enchanted Garden of Lights and we look forward to it every Christmas. It’s become a tradition not only for my immediate family but extended as well. It’s such a unique and beautiful place for all of us to get out of the house and spend some quality time together.”

It’s important to spend that quality time together creating memories. This year, make some new family traditions by exploring some of Chattanooga’s top holiday experiences.
