I am so excited about the latest thing to hit Turner Field, and it has nothing to do with baseball!  Global Winter Wonderland is coming to Atlanta, and you have a chance to win tickets for your family!  Growing up in Atlanta, a “winter wonderland” was but an alliterative term, not a concept I actually understood.  Snow?!  But with the Global Winter Wonderland, the abstract can become more concrete for y’all.  Seriously, this is one event you don’t want to miss!

Global Winter Wonderland Atlanta 2013

What IS the Global Winter Wonderland coming to Atlanta?

Global Winter Wonderland, a spectacular lantern festival and multicultural theme park, will allow guests to travel the world in one visit while viewing the larger-than-life lantern designs of landmarks from countries all over the globe.


Global Winter Wonderland features giant illuminated lanterns depicting creatures and scenes that include a Christmas holiday village, animals real and imagined, and people and scenes from around the world. Highlights include recreations of some of the world’s greatest architectural achievements, including the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, Chichen Itza, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The eco-friendly lanterns, some of which tower more than 50 feet high and span nearly 100 feet wide, are illuminated with low voltage LEDs and fluorescent lights, and several structures are powered by solar panels. The family event of the holiday season also features numerous carnival rides and games, international cuisine, arts and crafts, live entertainment, and celebrations of holiday traditions and various cultures from around the world.

    The ONE winter in snowed in my hometown in jr. High and school was cancelled for a couple days. We had so much fun!

  2. yarnaddicted says:

    My favorite memory is taking the kids to see Santa every year when they were very young!
    Kim Reid

  3. I remember getting a stereo system when I was a teenager and I jumped up and down with excitement. Lisa

  4. J.L. Williams says:

    My favorite Christmas was the first year I came to Atlanta. I was a high school student then. My grandparents were still here, we sang carols, had plenty of gifts, food and family fun. It was a blessed time!

  5. I remember when I was a kid living in Texas we would get so excited when we got “snow” also known as sleet. LOL

  6. I love enjoying the rare snowfall we get here in Georgia. Because it rarely snows it is definitely a treat when we get it.

    • Barbara says:

      I know, right, Katherine!? And because it’s a rare treat, the whole city shuts down. Secretly, I think it’s so folks can enjoy it, although I know it’s because we’re so inept when it comes to “surviving snow”. πŸ˜‰

  7. Sledding down our hill – which was our entire street! We were outside in CT for HOURS on the coldest days but never felt anything but joy!!!!!!

  8. Trish Thomas says:

    I love putting out reindeer food and cookies and milk for Santa with my kids

  9. Renee C says:

    My favorite winter memory is watching my kids use a cookie sheet as a sled!

  10. patsy white says:

    Sledding down the hill (that I thought was a mountain!) With my mom!

  11. amy hill says:

    I remember going to ride the pink pig when it was at Rich’s and going to the Festival of Trees @ the GWCC. πŸ™‚

    • Barbara says:

      I remember going to the Festival of Trees as a kid — I think with the Girl Scouts. That was always a ton of fun!

  12. Jennifer Hogan says:

    Way too many memories to choose one – but the first one that comes to mind is the first year that my husband and I got to play Santa for our first child.

  13. Katie Powers says:

    My favorite memory of Christmas is each year my family decorate our Christmas tree. I love looking at all the homemade ornaments and all the memories each ornament holds.

  14. Abbie says:

    Moving our sleeping 5 yr old into our bed on Christmas Eve whilst we put together her new bed (cursing Ikea all the way), rearranging her room completely then moving her back into the new bed, still fast asleep with her Christmas stocking, where she awoke on Christmas morning, completely surprised, confused, delighted and full of the magic of Christmas!

  15. Tracey says:

    A memory that sticks out is witnessing my daughter’s excitement seeing snow for the first time!

    • Barbara says:

      Isn’t that the truth? I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing childhood through my children’s eyes.

  16. Jenn H. says:

    ….hiding under the teachers desk at recess with friends, because we thought it was too cold to go outside πŸ™‚ Jenn H..

  17. Jessi says:

    I grew up in PA where we had LOTS of snow! Every year my Dad built an awesome sledding track for us. The best time to go sledding? At night with torches lighting the way!

  18. I remember driving through lights at Longwood Gardens (up in Philly area) and going to the country club with my grandparents to see Santa. The last few years in ATL we’ve done the Botanical Gardens and Callaway Gardens. AND I just blogged about the GWW and want to go so badly – looks awesome. Thank you!!

    • Barbara says:

      Kaitlin, I just looked over your Christmas in Atlanta bucket list, and I am impressed! (I can only check off the Pink Pig. And, honestly, last year was the first time I’d ever gone!) Good luck!

  19. Arlynn.filomeno@gmail.com says:

    Favorite memory – Visting our friends and families house to sing christmas carols and eating a bunch of yummy treats from the host! πŸ™‚

    • Barbara says:

      Aww! I went caroling one year with my youth group – we visited shut ins, and it left a big impression on me.

  20. Cassie brown says:

    My favorite winter memory as a child was baking cookies with my grandma. She lived in nY but came to SC for the winter so it was important to me to make cookies with her and get that quality time

    • Barbara says:

      Cassie, that makes me smile just thinking about it!

      • Cassie says:

        I miss her so much. Her passing happened during one of my finals weeks but I still bake cookies every. Year this year Alexa is joining me

    • Deepali says:

      Aren’t Grandmothers just the best? πŸ™‚

  21. We got snowed in at Girl Scout camp. We went sledding on garbage bags and made smores in the fireplace of the lodge. 200 girls sleeping all in the same room. So much fun!

  22. Tara Baldwin says:

    It actually snowed in my town when I was 13. That was the first time I ever saw snow. We didnt have to go to school and me and my brothers roamed all over our neighborhood playing in it and making our first snowman! It melted the next day but it was fun while it lasted!

    • Barbara says:

      Tara, Growing up in Atlanta, the concept of “snow” was mostly abstract. So on the rare occasion it *did* snow and it stuck left us in awe as kids! πŸ™‚

  23. Kauana Daniels-Stills says:

    My favorite winter memory is helping my son to build his first snowman here in Georgia! Absolutely magical!

  24. Yuliya E. says:

    I remember my childhood winters with a lots of snow and my friends and me are having fun sledding! πŸ™‚

  25. Jen Myllymaki says:

    I grew up in CT- so there was PLENTY of snow for sledding. I used to love that.

  26. Brandee Bratcher says:

    My favorite is just simply decorating the day after Thanksgiving. Such a great day and tradition!

  27. Suzanne C says:

    My favorite winter moment was my 1st year in GA when we had the blizzard. I have NEVER in my life seen so much snow. I kind of miss it!

    • Barbara says:

      Interesting, Suzanne – Georgia seems to get a blizzard about every 10 years. Which one were you here for? πŸ™‚

  28. Yuliya E. says:

    My oldest daughter has been so lucky to have 3 snow winters in a row when she was a toddler and we could have a great time to play with snow and make a snowman!

  29. Jyldyz Hughes says:

    Playing in the snow with my sister.

  30. Favorite memory was Dad taking us all outside late on Christmas Eve to see Rudolph’s nose shining in the sky. Once i got older, i realized that airplane lights look very similar to Rudolph’s red nose πŸ™‚ My dad wins the award for best Dad ever πŸ™‚
