Celebrate Christmas in North Myrtle Beach

Christmastime is often referred to as the most wonderful time of the year. Quite appropriate, since Santa, his elves, and the magic of the holiday season only are superseded by the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ; there truly are so many reasons to be joyful and thankful as December comes to an end.

In the South, we look forward to celebrating Christmas together as a family. We invite friends, as well to large community events with food, festivities, and smiling faces. The cold weather (if were lucky) and brisk air make for a perfect setting to cherish one another as we look back at another year in which weve been blessed.

During the whole month of December, North Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas provide endless entertainment, events, and celebrations for families. Here are several of those taking place across the Grand Strand.
