As the festive season sweeps through the air, I embarked on an incredible journey exploring the magical holiday spirit of Georgetown and DC. Here is a snapshot of my adventures that will surely sprinkle some holiday cheer into your day!

Georgetown Tree Lighting Ceremony

Kicking off the season, my friends and I gathered at Georgetown for the dazzling tree-lighting ceremony. The night was filled with melodic singing performances that resonated with joy and an amazing play that captivated us all. The twinkling lights and cheerful crowd set the perfect tone for a holiday filled with wonder and merriment.

Gliding into Fun at Georgetown Waterfront Ice Skating Rink

Next on the agenda was a sweet adventure at the Georgetown Waterfront Ice Skating Rink. The waterfront transformed into a winter wonderland, and I laced up my skates and bravely practiced skating backward. And guess what? I did not fall! Laughter echoed through the air as my friends and I embraced the joy of gliding on ice.

A Capitol Christmas Tour with Friends

Venturing into the heart of DC, a group of fellow Congressional interns and I explored the U.S. Capitol Dome. We marveled at the grandeur of the iconic architecture and delighted in spotting the beautifully adorned National Christmas Tree. The holiday magic was infused in every corner of the Capitol, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Monumenting in the Frosty Cold

As the holiday season approached its peak, my friends and I braved the chilly weather for a monumental adventure. Bundled up against the cold, we explored the iconic monuments, taking in the breathtaking views of the city draped in festive lights.

So there you have it – a whirlwind tour of Georgetown and DC during this enchanting holiday season. Wishing you all a season filled with joy, laughter, and the warmth of festive celebrations!
