If you haven't gotten into the Christmas spirit yet, there are certainly plenty of opportunities to do so over the next few days at and near the Delaware and Maryland beaches.

From Milton and Rehoboth Beach to Ocean City, Dover, Wilmington, and several other nearby locales, a lot is going on during this second full weekend of December.

Pick your favorites and enjoy this special time of year in this special area of the country.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Milton Holly Fest (December 9)

We honor Milton’s history as one of the leading holly producers in the United States this Saturday with the town’s annual Holly Festival.

Scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in three separate locations throughout town, this festival is highly anticipated every year in Milton and features nearly 100 vendors showcasing an abundance of crafts, artwork, jewelry, holiday gifts, and, of course, wreaths and other items made out of holly.

This year’s festival will be held at the Milton Fire Hall, the Milton Public Library, and at H.O. Brittingham Elementary School.

The Lydia B. Cannon Museum will also be involved, featuring crafts, face painting, and visits from Santa Claus throughout the day.

Downtown Rehoboth Holiday Stroll (December 10)

This fun community event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. this Sunday, December 10, and is a great way to get into the holiday spirit in the "Nation's Summer Capital."

There will be town carolers singing holiday songs, photo opportunities galore, random "snowmen" meandering about, and even Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making appearances throughout the resort.
