Steve and I decided it would be fun to visit Colonial Williamsburg today to see it decorated for Christmas. There is still a light snow on the ground and this made the village even more beautiful. It was cold today but they had bonfires going and we found a cute place to have hot cocoa and cookies. Enjoy the pictures.
After visiting Colonial Williamsburg we stopped by Yankee Candle’s Flagship Store. Can you believe readers have voted this the 2ND best attraction in Williamsburg? This flagship store is over 10,000 square feet and they carry 400,000 candles…and I did not get even one picture of a candle? The store has a year round Christmas village set up with individual shops and hundreds of Christmas trees . It even snows in the village every four minutes.
They sell a lot more than just candles. You can buy beautiful Italian dishes and ceramics, Christmas villages, jewelry, handbags, and even gourmet popcorn and fudge. It is a great place to take children, especially this time of year. They can have lunch with Santa in the cafe, make their own candles, create a wax mold of their hand and many other activities.
Yes, I could not resist bringing a few candles home with me.
