The Lodge at Winterfest is full of comfy seats.

During the holiday season, there are a few traditions guaranteed to put even the Grinches and Scrooges of the family in the Christmas spirit. 

Baking cookies, listening to Christmas music, decorating the tree and watching holiday films are a few of the easiest ways to get excited for Dec. 25.
