For many reasons the month of December is considered to be a magical time of the year. While you recover from all those Thanksgiving leftovers and flip to the last pages of the 2015 calendar in the Johnny Appleseed Country Guide, it dawns on you: It’s December.

December – It’s the time of the year when feelings of nostalgia take over. You begin to recall cherished memories of from your past; choose to illuminate and decorate your present; and always look forward to creating future traditions. December – There is no other month like it, and there is no better place than Johnny Appleseed Country to celebrate it. Find and embrace your 2015 Holiday Spirit.

With an abundance of Holiday activities from tree lightings and fairs, to plays and music performances, Appleseed Country is a perfect place to celebrate with your children, family, friends, or any guests who may be traveling during the Holiday Season.
