Selling a home can be stressful. So can the holiday season! That’s why today I’m asking all of you to take a break from home-for-sale stress and do something a little different. Stop staging. Cease cleaning. And do what is sometimes the best thing to do when you’ve got a home for sale — get out of it!
Absence will make your heart grow fonder and your blood pressure go lower! And there are plenty of magical holiday happenings in our area that will help make yours a wonderful life. Here are a few escapist suggestions:
A Charlie Brown Christmas
In a very special event for the 2011 holiday season, the five time Grammy-nominated pianist David Benoit and his quartet will play a show full of holiday songs and arrangements made famous by Vince Guaraldi. There’s even a performance tonight at the Halton Theater. For information or tickets, click here.
A Cinematic Christmas
Gather up the family for an evening watching Christmas movie favorites on the big screen at Neighborhood Theatre. Buckwild Kettle Corn and Smelly Cat willhave popcorn & hot chocolate for sale. Revolution Pizza will have pizza available and FuManChu will be selling cupcakes! And as always Neighborhood Theatre bar will be open. For tickets and show times, click here. Charlotte Motor Speedway is excited to bring the holidays to life this winter season with the return of Carolina Christmas, a spectacular drive-through Christmas light park and village located at the legendary superspeedway.
Carolina Christmas is one of the largest holiday light shows in the United States, featuring more than 600 LED light displays boasting 3 million lights. Carolina Christmas also offers a Christmas Village with a realistic Bethlehem-themed village, a Festival of Trees, photos with Santa and areas with food and music. Carolina Christmas is even bigger and better this year! Visitors will love the extended route, reaching nearly 5 miles in length, filled with Christmas lights and displays. Carolina Christmas goers will enter the light park at zMAX Dragway, pass by The Dirt Track at Charlotte and into Charlotte Motor Speedway where a drive on the 1.5-mile superspeedway is part of the holiday fun!

No matter where you go, there’s holiday spirit to spare. That’s one thing I love about our community! I hope you’ll take some time to love it to. Now, go grab your coat!
