1006 N Hudson, Ste 101, OKC

Snow doesn’t come often to Oklahoma City, but when it does we take full advantage — snowmen, snowball fights, sledding and hot cocoa are a guarantee if we are lucky enough to wake up to see any amount of the white stuff on the ground! Theresa Graif

Found Love Bridal Consignment

2420B N Robinson Ave, OKC

Christmas Tree Day is our family’s favorite holiday tradition. It’s the day after Thanksgiving; we spend the entire day decorating the house, listening to Christmas music and ending the day with takeout and homemade cookies! Lindsie Guthrie

Literati Press Comics & Novels

We have a massive extended family, so just getting the entire herd together in one place to eat pie and tell embarrassing stories about one another is always the highlight of the season. Charles Martin 

Plenty Mercantile

807 N Broadway Ave, OKC

Our favorite OKC holiday tradition is Lights on Broadway. When the lights go on, we know the holiday season has finally arrived! Brittney Matlock, shown with her mother and co-owner Traci Walton

Shop Good

1007 N Broadway Ave, OKC

One of our favorite family traditions is working the Christmas Eve shift at the shop as a family. We’ve done this since the kids were babies. It started as a way to make sure the rest of our team gets a head start on the holiday, but now that the kids are older it’s just really fun. Sawyer likes to answer the phone as Buddy the Elf (‘What’s your favorite color?’) and Hadley likes to gift wrap for all of the frazzled 20-something-year-old guys who run in looking for gifts on their way to family dinner. Their favorite thing is when a customer brings their family dog shopping, too. We always share a little toast to another hard-earned holiday season together before heading home to wait for Santa. Audrey Falk
