Holiday + Christmas Guide: Where to Cut your Christmas Tree, Christmas Events, Live Nativities + More!

They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year and I have to agree. It’s the season when Lansing families head to cut their own Christmas tree, visit live nativity scenes,  gather together for tree lighting festivities and Christmas events, and get out into the city more than any other time of year.

During this festive time, our communities feel alive, the air is crisp, and the time with family amidst the quietly falling snow reminds us what holiday season is all about.

Where to Find Live Nativity Scenes

A fond memory from my childhood is going to a live nativity scene. I often think on that moment with warm and fuzzy feelings.

A few years ago I agreed to be in a live nativity scene. My youngest son played baby Jesus and my eldest a little lamb. I felt a bit silly at first but in the end it was so much fun and worth it. Their faces lit up as we re-told the beautiful story.
