I love Christmas and am so lucky to live in Williamsburg. We celebrate it in many wonderful ways. My favorite is Grand Illumination, which happens on the first Sunday of December each year. I like to start the day shopping in Merchant Square, followed by a late-afternoon walk through the historic area when the sun is low in the sky and illuminating the old brick and gorgeous door decorations in soft winter light.

Here’s 2015 schedule of events for Grand Illumination, Colonial Williamsburg.

Then I enjoy dinner in one of the taverns with friends and family as we wait for the fife and drum parade … and the grand finale of amazing fireworks. It’s Colonial Williamsburg’s best gift to the community and they do it well. See you there!
