Knott’s Merry Farm
During the holiday season Knott’s Berry Farm transforms into Knott’s Merry Farm with spectacular shows, lights, and even a tree lighting. I was very eager to visit Knott’s for the holiday season as just a few weeks prior to kicking off the holidays they announced that some familiar faces from Ghost Town Alive (read more about Ghost Town Alive here) would be returning for the holiday season.
One of Calico’s returning citizens was Doctor Carter, the town doctor and a bit of an inventor. Inspired by his new bride’s love of Christmas and wanting to keep the town safe, he told me he created a generator so the town’s Christmas tree could be lit with electric light instead of candles. He was very proud of his invention and took us to see it after showing us his plans.
At five o’clock, Mayor Parnell and gemologist Ophelia arrived along with Doctor Carter to light the tree, along with the beautiful lights in Ghost Town.
If you are local and didn’t get to Knott’s Berry Farm this year, but thinking of getting a pass for 2017, I recommend doing it soon! They are currently running a promotion where if you buy a pass for next year, you get to go one day this year! So you can go and enjoy Merry Farm and get a taste of Ghost Town Alive (which will be returning next summer)! Visit Knott’s website to learn more. If you aren’t local but visiting California during the holiday season or during summer next year, I highly recommend a visit to Knott’s! You won’t regret it!
In the meantime, Patrick and I have been decorating for Christmas, so I hope to share our home with you in the near future!

Lovely festive outfit
OMG! That skirt! I love it! I need to go to Knott’s for Christmas.
Check out AtomicSwag’s women’s sweaters…
So wonderful and festive! And oh to be wearing short sleeves and just a sweater… there are some things I miss about California!
This outfit is PERFECT! Love it!
Knott’s is so magical this time of year. We were there on Thanksgiving and ended up at Ghost Town Grille, eating turkey sandwiches and watching as the “snow” fell on Calico.
That novelty print skirt is incredible! And I love the Mexican wedge sandals. Have a pair like it in red. Very comfortable!
