Chicago Christmas Overview

Christmas_s165x110

Though Christmas is a Christian holiday, it has taken on a much more universal and magical meaning on the global calendar thanks to images of Santa Claus, carolers, winter wonderlands, and scrumptious meals.

In many cities, the weather outside is pretty frightful during the Christmas season. Such is usually case in Chicago, where families everywhere from Lincoln Park to the South Loop gather to exchange gifts, sing some classic Xmas tunes, and drink a whole lot of spiked eggnog.

In addition to family time, Xmas season in Chicago means a potpourri of fantastic Christmas parties for both college students and adults. Bars like Butch McGuire’s in the Gold Coast offer up an authentic Windy City Christmas complete with beer, music, and holiday cheer.

Christmas events pop up all around Chicago at locations like the Navy Pier. There, the fantastic Winter WonderFest brings the beauty of the snow-covered season inside with various rides, shops, photo opportunities, and delicious food for the whole family.  

Brave Chicagoans can venture into the harsh weather for a handful of outdoor Christmas celebrations, too. At Millennium Park, snowgoers can strap on a pair of skates and glide on a ice rink that affords attendees an unparalleled view of the city.  

It’s easy to get into the holiday spirit during Christmas in Chicago in 2018. Kids waking up to presents under trees shouldn’t be the only ones having a good time!
