Fuzzy socks, hot chocolate, and a warming fire are indeed a recipe for the coziest December season.

As the holidays approach, many students are spending more quality time
with the people they love. This year, Hanukkah is from the 18th to the 26th of December, which collides with Christmas, surely guaranteeing an eventful end of the month.

Cherry Hill and the surrounding towns are incredibly festive during this time of the year, but some of the events go unnoticed. The Cherry Hill Inaugural festivities at Croft Farm began on December 4th from 5-7pm. This farm is located on 100 Bortons Mill Rd and it is a great outing spot for family and friends. There was an annual Christmas tree lighting on the 4th and now many can enjoy visits from Santa, live music, and food trucks.

There is also the annual South Jersey Menorah car parade that commences on Sunday the 18th of December from 4-5pm on 1925 Kresson Rd. Car-top Menorah’s will parade through the town
but a spot must be reserved to participate. The mayor of Gloucester Township is hosting a Christmas
Village Market which started on the 11th of this month and is said to include Christmas decor, jewelry,
and offerings of free cookies and hot chocolate. Live music, carousel rides for kids, and a
Mainstage choir are also included for entertainment. There is also Winterfest ice skating at
Cooper River and many more Hanukkah community events. This Christmas season is
especially exciting given it is the first year of normally commenced festivities after the pandemic.
To ensure an enjoyable season with family and friends, it is important to partake in
community events as well as decorating a Christmas tree, visiting markets, and enjoying
Winterfest all around South Jersey. As the cold weather approaches, so does another year of
celebrations during this exciting time of the year.
