It is amazing how many different holiday traditions people celebrate right here in Lubbock. My family likes to attend events in Lubbock (Santa Land, carnivals, Polar Express, looking at Christmas lights, etc…) and one of our favorites is The Nutcracker put on by Ballet Lubbock. On Saturday afternoon, my group plans to get all dressed up, have a nice lunch, and then go to the show. The tickets are selling fast, so make sure to get yours soon!

The Nutcracker is based on the story “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” written by E.T.A. Hoffman. The first Nutcracker Ballet premiered at the Mariinksy Theater in St. Petersburg in 1892. It was not premiered in the USA until 1944 in San Francisco. It is the story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker prince and battle against a Mouse King with seven heads. You will visit the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets in your journey through the Nutcracker.

As many know, the part of Mother Ginger is always a fun highlight each season. Some notable Mother Gingers for this year include: Tonja Hagy-Valdine (LHUCA), Tedd Mitchell (TTUHSC President), and Mayor Glen Robertson.

    I like the whole site , it’s all great information that most of us wouldn’t have access to without out LITL , the ranod acts of kindness is probably my favorite because it helps remind us that there are people that are less fortunate and we need to help them especially this time of the year !

    My favorite section is the Random Acts of Christmas! I love this season of giving and all the opportunities for families to come together and serve others in need! God blesses us everyday and any opportunity to “pay it forward” is awesome!

    I like the activities list and the pay it forward part. Pick me! I have a friend and her son in the Nutcracker, but I don’t think I’ll be able to swing the cost of 4 tickets for my family to go this month.

    My favorite part of the Christmas Extravaganza is The Christmas Light Map. One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is drive around and look at all the Christmas lights.

    The rack! The festivities are so fun but not everyone has the circumstances to enjoy it so any way to help others should be emphasized.

  20. Olga flores

    The random act of kindness is my favorite because it gives my family many opportunities to help others. It also teaches my son that it’s a great thing to help others with out expecting something in return! Thank you for all the information!
