Relocation: Creating Holiday Traditions in St. Lous

Relocation Nov 2010

There were two years that I was not able to celebrate the holidays in St. Louis. And I remember being especially homesick during the Holiday Season when I lived abroad. I think it was the lack of tradition that was the most difficult. This year I have been fortunate enough to work with several Relocation Clients. Working with people who are moving to St. Louis is one of my favorite parts of my job. Giving them the tour of the city and showing them all that St. Louis has to offer always reminds me of what I love best about living here. This blog post is for anyone who recently relocated (or is thinking about relocating). The first holiday season in a new place can be tough. But creating new traditions is often the first step in carving out a home in a new place.


Here are couple ideas that might make it on your new tradition list:

Thanksgiving Day Parade and All You Can Eat Thanksgiving Feast at South City Diner.

Chanukah Festival of Lights at MOBOT

Pick up a Christmas Tree at Ted Drewes or Cut  Your Own at Eckert’s

Winter Wonderland in Tilles Park and Hot Chocolate at Baileys Chocolate Bar after.
