Enjoy the Best of the Woodstock, Vermont Christmas Season
If you’re looking for a postcard-worthy destination to get into the holiday spirit, then you don’t want to miss a Woodstock, Vermont Christmas. The entire village gets dressed up for the season with lights all aglow and fresh greens adorning doorways and fences. Once the snow begins to fall in earnest this winter, the village is transformed into something straight out of a snow globe or a print by Currier & Ives.

Shopping and pretty lights aren’t all a Woodstock, Vermont Christmas has in store for you, though. The season is also packed with fun events, including the best of them all, Woodstock’s popular Wassail Weekend.

Finally, no Woodstock, Vermont Christmas season would be complete without taking in the breathtaking winter landscapes you’ll find around every bend, the perfect backdrop for various outdoor adventures.
