Christmas is a magical time of year for Western New York. This is truly one of the best regions to celebrate Christmas, and it has to do with the amazing people who live here (City of Good Neighbors), and the fact the weather is cold enough to put you in the spirit of the holiday season.

Christmas Eve is one of the most unique days of the year. It has a different feel than any other day and often times involved family parties, with traditions that people look forward to every year.
