For many, Christmastime brings small pleasures such as peppermint-flavored coffee creamer and the earthy smell of pine from freshly cut trees now decorated with blinking lights and ornaments.

But, it’s also a time to celebrate unique Dallas events that arrive this time of year. From a White House holiday exhibit to carriage rides to tree lightings to shows, there’s plenty to put on your calendars.

Proud to Serve Our Community


During this holiday season our focus turns to the people and things that are near and dear to our hearts: our community, our faith, our values, our traditions, and our family.

We remind ourselves of our blessings and think about ways we can be of service to those less fortunate.
