Christmas In Minnesota

Christmas Vacation Ideas

Christmas in Minnesota gets all of us out to celebrate and enjoy winter activities. Christmas vacation ideas in Minnesota include winter festivals and Minnesota ski resort getaways.

I have celebrated Christmas in Minnesota every year of my life. Many of my favorite memories are of family holiday gatherings and Christmas traditions. Only one that I recall was not a white Christmas; most were "snowglobe" perfect.

Christmas In Minnesota

One year many from our family spent Christmas in our northern Minnesota "deer camp" cabin. We scouted the woods nearby for the perfect Christmas tree and all joined in cutting it down and dragging it back to the cabin.

We spent the evening making traditional tree decorations including popcorn and cranberry strings and paper snowflakes. 

A fire in the wood stove, hot chocolate, some winter poems,  and the rustic setting all contributed to the best Christmas ever.

Minnesota Vacations are just as much fun in a Minnesota winter!

A white Christmas in Minnesota is the perfect setting to enjoy outdoor fun from a long list of winter sports. Children who found new ice skates, sleds or skis under the tree can't wait to get out and use them.

During the entire Christmas season we take every opportunity to enjoy displays of lights and the festive atmosphere. Main streets in almost every town are decorated with bright lights; Christmas concerts, parades and other celebrations add to the joy of the season.

Minnesota winter festivals bring us together to celebrate our communities, the season and the joys of family and home.

Traditional Minnesota Christmas Recipes

The population in Minnesota is increasingly diverse, however when the Christmas season arrives, those who claim a Scandinavian heritage often get the rest of us to at least try some of their Christmas recipes. Lutefisk and lefse is a traditional Minnesota Christmas meal that everyone should experience at least once!

We're often asked if a white Christmas is guaranteed in Minnesota. The answer is "yes...but...." It's a near certainty that there will be snow for Christmas in the northern part of the state with the probability of Christmas snow lessening to about sixty percent for the southern parts of the state. 

If you want to travel for the holidays our best Christmas vacation ideas include coming to Minnesota for the food, the snow, and the festivities. You will love it.
