Why We Love Living In Seattle: Holiday Happenings that Illuminate Our City

The excitement and enchantment of the holiday season is wonderful, but let’s be honest: it can be a very expensive time of year, leaving very little funds for entertainment. The good news is several of the best holiday traditions in Seattle are free of charge! We have compiled a list of special places to visit during the month of December with fun for kids of all ages.
