We thought of this ginormous idea last week, but ultimately it's thanks to you and your suggestions in the past that we go crazy with Christmas so we can make smiling your favorite and help you treat every day like Christmas.
So welcome to Unglued Christmas Camp! Pairs well with a "You have such a pretty face. You should be on a Christmas card." vibes. And lighting up every floor button in an elevator.
This winter wonderland day includes totally free fun along with ticketed fun and you'll earn a merry merit badge for attending any of them. You choose your Son of a Nutcracker adventure below and if you earn 5 merry merit badges you'll get our (currently super secret) holiday t-shirt as your Christmas Camp award. Please note Christmas Camp is for adults, but kids can join in caroling!
Your holly jolly schedule is further below to choose from, but here's our other recs to fill your day with in between what you choose:
*WEAR YOUR CHRISTMAS GEAR. We'll be decked out and recommend you make it merry, too. Wear your sweats for yoga and bring a bag to change in Brewhalla's bathrooms to throw back on that Christmas sweater or light up necklace.
*Bring your holiday cards to fill out! Brewhalla is the perfect place to grab a cozy corner and a coffee to check that off your list.
