Popular Illinois attraction to host last chance for a holiday sing-along.

The Holidays Are A Great Time Of Year

I truly enjoy the holidays. It is such a magical time of year. There is getting together with friends and family. Watching seasonal movies. Several parties and events. That just covers a small portion of all the fun activities.

I Enjoy Christmas Music

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the music with so many great songs. I even have my special holiday CD collection that I pull out every year. It is my soundtrack for the month of December.


Family Holiday Traditions

Growing up, my parents and I had a few holiday traditions. I have continued them with my family. One of them is going to Chicago to check out all the Christmas decorations and lights. Visiting places like the Museum of Science Industry, Daley Plaza, and Millennium Park to just name a few.

Christmas Caroling Is A Fun Family Activity

Even though I am a huge fan of music and holiday songs, I have no singing skills at all. Fortunately, when it comes to Christmas songs it is not required. Just grab a group of friends and family to do some caroling. Hopefully, they will cover for your weakness.


The Bean Is A Popular Attraction

When it comes to tourist attractions in Illinois and Chicago, one of the top places is the "Bean" in Millennium Park. I wonder how many selfies have been taken there. I think for people coming to the Windy City, it is a required stop for a photo.
