The snow has just arrived, which can only mean one thing--it's almost Christmas!  No matter what you celebrate or who you celebrate with, the businesses of Chicago's western suburbs make it fun and easy to get in the holiday spirit.  First up, on Saturday, November 28, take a break after Black Friday shopping with...more shopping!  The La Grange Business Association is hosting its Small Business Saturday with deals and treats in stores to kick-start your holiday shopping.  

On Friday, December 4th, and Saturday, December 5, the Western Springs Business Association opens up its Festival of Trees.  This annual event includes deals at local businesses, free sweets and treats, carriage rides, and visits with Santa himself!  Local business, schools, and groups have decorated small trees on the tower green, perfect for looking at while sipping a hot cocoa.  The night will really light up at 5pm on Saturday, when the big tree is lit and the caroling begins. 

In La Grange, the annual Holiday Walk starts on Saturday, December 5 with the tree lighting in front of Village Hall, led by Santa in a firetruck!  There are activities and entertainment all day for the whole family, including a screening of "Elf," performances by LT's Madrigals, and personal visits with Santa, along with more open houses at everyone's favorite La Grange shops and restaurants.  Click here to learn more about La Grange's holiday celebrations, including how you can win La Grange Business Association gift certificates just for shopping!  And most importantly, Happy Holidays from everyone at Dean Rouso Home Team!
