Looking for the Christmas Spirit?

If you think that the Holiday Spirit is all gone then go to Hampden to prove you wrong. You may not be in the Christmas mood and no one can blame you. Cards to send, gifts to buy, every year it becomes easier to lose sight of what Christmas and the holiday season is all about.
But down in Hampden that is not the case.
On one block in Baltimore, the meaning of the holiday season is not lost. Come down to the 700 block of 34th St, between Chestnut St. and Keswick Rd. to see a glimpse of Santa’s North Pole. For the past few weeks until the end of the year, this block will be filled with lights and spirit for all to see.
Why you should see the Miracle in 34th St?
  • Gets you in the Christmas spirit. For some people it takes the weather to get into the spirit of Christmas, particularly snow. But since that hasn’t happened yet and with the weather being as unpredictable as it has been, the lights and decor should get your spirits up to last you until the rest of the holiday season.
  • It’s a local tradition. Baltimore’s Miracle at 34th St. has been ongoing since 1947. Now in their 65th year anniversary, it is truly a Baltimore gem and treasure.
  • Cheap date. Grab some hot chocolate or coffee from the cafe up the street and walk over to the lights show. With a block full of exhibits and conversation starters you can keep the date flow going effortlessly. Have you eve seen a hubcap Christmas tree?
  • Supporting local businesses. Have a drink or check out their trendy thrift shops while your there. Hampden is known for their local shops. Any store door you walk into will help the community out.
  • It’s free. While you may be strapped for cash after you bought all your gifts for your friends and family, you can go to this event free of charge and you can bring as many people as you want.

City sidewalks dressed in holiday style, get the feeling of Christmas time in Hampden.
