Decorating the house, putting up the tree, listening to your favorite Christmas carols and baking cookies are all some of my favorite holiday activities.

At my house, the Christmas celebrations always begin the weekend after Thanksgiving.

It starts with some Black Friday shopping, followed by putting up my parents Christmas tree, lighting the house and of course baking a bunch of cookies.

The town is also home to Santa and Mrs. Claus who come to town by train and every year the town has a live nativity scene.

The big attraction is the city’s Christmas House Tour.

The historic homes that fill this small town are beautifully decorated at Christmas, and each year residents and visitors alike get to check out all the beautiful homes.

Every home is a little different, and homeowners mix it up every year so it’s like a brand new tour every year.

Which New Jersey City Was Voted Best Traditional Christmas City?

My first thought would have been Cape May, it has amazing Victorian houses, a quaint downtown shopping area and the streets are lined with lights.

However, Only in Your State reports that a small rural town in Salem County, New Jersey has the best traditional Christmas ever.
