Join me for a Texas Sized Holiday!

Christmas in Texas just doesn’t get any better than in San Antonio! That’s why Southern Living named it:

Best City for a Southern Christmas

Besides the breathtaking Riverwalk light display … there is something spectacular happening up on the hills of La Cantera. Each year, the Westin La Cantera puts on an event like no other, the Hill Country Holidays, it really is an event not to be missed!

My favorite part about Hill Country Holidays, no, its not the ice skating rink, or the Majik Theater production of Bucaneers in Toyland, or the cowboy led legendary holiday walking tour … that ends with a magical snowfall!

It’s all of that and more. You see, the Westin La Cantera opens this event up to the entire city. Children from all over can come and sip hot cocoa, build a wooden toy, decorate some cookies, sit on Santa’s lap and play in the North Pole!

The Westin La Cantera really gets the family tradition part of Christmas and makes it a wonderful experience for the entire family. They have a team of “elves” who work to make sure of that.

The Hill Country Holiday event begins
this Thursday, 22 November – Sunday, 6 Jan.

This year, I am thrilled to be staying on their property to experience all that Hill Country Holidays and Frost has to offer, but even more EXCITING than that is my opportunity to give one of you a night in this incredible resort as well!!!

Your family will love this unique Texas holiday experience.

    Best tradition (and it’s super corny) getting everyone the same exact pajamas and making them wear them on Christmas eve. My hubs goes along with it, for me. I love it and it makes the night fun and Christmas morning even better.

  2. says

    This would be so awesome! My family had lots of little traditions we did from Thanksgiving through Christmas. My parents moved overseas recently, so we won’t get to be together until after Christmas this year and my husband’s family does not really make a big deal out of Christmas. :-( A night away with my husband and son would make it feel more special this year!

    being able to do both sides of the family – DH on Christmas eve and mine on Christmas day, is a big deal for my kids, so I love that we live close enough to see all the relatives in such a short time span

    My favorite Holiday tradition has always been baking cookies with my Mom and Brother. This year I will be sharing that tradition with my new husband!

  5. Bronwyn says

    Our favorite tradition is to use the felt advent calendar my mom made us. My boys (1 & 2) love the little decorations that get ‘velcro-ed’ to the tree each day.

    We love San Antonio, and on a student budget, winning this would be a real Christmas treat for us!

  6. says

    San Antonio is such a beautiful city! Family traditions include making/eating lots of tamales and taking a riverboat to see all the lights downtown. We love it!

  7. says

    We don’t get a lot of time together, so come holiday season we love doing things together. One of our favorite things to do it load up in the van. Everyone with their pajamas and hot chocolate and take a drive to look at Christmas lights. There is something so magical about it. Love it.

  8. Kelley F says

    We like to bake gingerbread men cookies and then share them with friends and family. We also like to drive around and look at Christmas lights.

  9. Mandy says

    Hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows, Christmas cookies, and always buying gifts for the less fortunate (even when we’re broke).

  10. says

    My favorite holiday tradition is going out with the family to see all the christmas lights on Christmas Eve with Christmas carols playing on the radio. We always end at the pond that has lights all around it that are choreographed to music, so magical! Love your picture above!

  11. Linda says

    As soon as Thanksgiving is over we start decorating for Christmas; indoors and out! We can’t wait to experience the holidays this year in a new home close to our grandkids, where they can experience our holiday traditions and we can make new ones with them. Enjoying the Hill Country Christmas with our family would be the beginning of a wonderful new Christmas tradition.

    What a great giveaway! I was in San Antonio over the holidays about 15 yrs ago and the Riverwalk is gorgeous this time of year. I’d love to go with my family now.
