City of Celina Announces Countdown to Christmas Schedule of Events

CELINA, TEXAS - The City of Celina released its full calendar of activities and participating businesses in this year's annual Countdown to Christmas. A favorite tradition of holiday visitors to Celina's historic Downtown Square, Countdown to Christmas provides special activities and offerings for residents and friends each day leading up to Christmas.

"This Countdown to Christmas schedule offers residents and our guests a chance to experience the best of Celina during the most wonderful time of the year," said Celina Mayor Ryan Tubbs. "Our historic Downtown Square has been transformed into a magical winter wonderland, and these special activities and promotions from our local partners and small businesses make a trip downtown even more memorable during the Christmas season."

Among the promotional activities this year, Downtown visitors will be able to take Pictures with Santa on Saturday, December 2, or take holiday photos with our Christmas Reinsteer on Saturday, December 16. A special treat will be for children to be able to drop off their letters to Santa at the Celina Public Library until Friday, December 15. If a child would like a return letter from Santa, parents are asked to include a stamp in the envelope then Santa's letters will be returned to the Celina Public Library between December 20 - 23.

"Countdown to Christmas is one of the best and most beautiful times of the year to plan a visit to our wonderful Downtown Celina area," said Brandy O'Keefe, Celina's Downtown Manager. "Few communities in Texas can boast as beautiful of a holiday display as our Christmas celebration throughout December in and around our historic Downtown Square. We hope everyone will take time to review our calendar of events and make Countdown to Christmas a part of their family's holiday plans."
