The Magical Place In New Jersey Where It’s Christmas Year-Round
Christmastime is magical. There’s joy in the air, everyone is jolly and spreading good cheer. Tis the season to give and the season to receive, neighbors are more neighborly. Home smells like gingerbread and pine trees, lights reflect beautifully off of ornaments… It is perhaps my favorite time of year.
Historic Smithville and the Village Green are magical. I remember my very first visit. I was instantly enchanted by the charming locale, excited to explore all the shops. I enjoyed good food, spent some time on the lake, strolled around leisurely. Something about the village evokes a sense of nostalgia, though the gifts and goodies you will find may be quite modern.
What happens when you combine the two? A delightful experience you’ll find only in New Jersey. You see, Historic Smithville is home to more than 40 unique shops, one of which celebrates Christmas all year-round.
