Celebrating Christmas in Montana can be magical. It's a great place to celebrate the holiday. I have been lucky enough to celebrate most of my Christmases in Montana. There have been a few here and there, where I have been traveling to visit family. I have celebrated Christmas in places like Napa, CA, Portland, OR and most recently, in London, England last year. I have to say Montana is my favorite place to celebrate the holiday.

Christmas in Montana Can Be Magical

There is so much to look forward to. For me a big part of the season has to be the snow and the cold. According to the Farmer’s Almanac there is a good chance that we are going to have a white Christmas across the state this year. I have been in places that don’t have snow, or cold for that matter, and it just doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel like Christmas.

Montana Has Two Towns That Are Christmassy

Ranked at 51 is Whitefish Mt. That is a tough one to argue with because Whitefish is a great Christmas town. You have Whitefish Mountain that over looks the city. They have night skiing, and when the the mountain lights up, it is pretty special. They also host a "Christmas Stroll" every year.
