What are some unique ways that Texans celebrate the holidays?
Texas like to do things its own way, and it's no different during the holidays, when Texans celebrate in true Lone Star State style. Christmas morning, everyone tucks into tamales rather than a brunch. The wreaths here aren't made of holly, but of barbed wire! While some will have the traditional turkey, most Texans enjoy a barbecued brisket. They also adopted the Mexican custom of lining walkways with luminarias, which are paper bags with some sand and a candle in them, making a beautiful nighttime display.
What are the best holiday festivals in Texas?
Texans all over the state throw holiday festivals like nowhere else. The Festival of Lights in Galveston is an utterly mesmerizing display of light and color that you won't soon forget. You can skate on an outdoor rink, sip hot chocolate, and ride on an Arctic slide. In Burnet, they have Christmas on the Square with a parade, arts and crafts, and live music including a singing Santa. Grapevine is considered the "Christmas Capital of Texas" and has a parade featured over 100 floats decorated to the gills with stunning lights.
