CitySlicker: Tex-Mas Cheer


With holiday break approaching, it’s time to whip our mittens, scarves and fuzzy socks out of storage. Despite Texas’s unruly dry and warm weather, Dallas perseveres with its holiday spirit, providing tourists and locals alike with a full itinerary of Christmas activities. For example, the Dallas Arboretum features an annual Twelve Days of Christmas exhibit, a walk-through display lined with lit trees. The Salvation Army, which has served the community with its Angel Tree program since 1984, is always searching for holiday donations and volunteers. The holiday options range from ice skating to ugly sweater shopping, so don’t forget to celebrate with bright cheer!
