The upcoming weekend is full of Christmas festivities, parades & craft events! It’s the perfect time to head out with your loved ones and enjoy the holiday season in Northern VA.

At several of these events you will find Toys for Tots donation boxes, & I highly encourage donating an unwrapped toy to this great charity.  Every child deserves a Christmas present!

There are still many holiday craft fairs happening locally also.  If you’d like to check out the list, CLICK HERE: holiday craft fairs list
