It’s that time of year again. As a Realtor in the north Denver suburbs, I look forward to the real estate market slowing down and the holiday spirit that follows Thanksgiving. I know that soon there will be holiday music playing and twinkling lights will be placed on houses and trees and the hint of all things pumpkin & spice will be floating through the air and all of this Holiday splendor can occasionally tempt me away from my business. It will all be welcomed!
The Holiday season is a time of reflection for me. Reflecting on the events of the past year and then fast forwarding to the exciting promise of potential and goals for my family’s future. This is a time for me to celebrate with my own family and pay homage to our own traditional beliefs for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The great news is that there are many activities we have up north for holidays. We no longer have go downtown to see the Holiday lights and Parade of Lights to get into the holiday spirit.
I live in the Reunion area which hosts its own Holiday activities (listed below) and I have compiled a list of Holiday activities in the North Metro areas. In case you already live in Denver’s northern suburbs or happen to be visiting, I wanted to know that there is plenty to do “up north”.
