The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden invites visitors to experience one of the most magical traditions in the Southwest — Holiday at the Arboretum, which runs from Nov. 7 to Dec. 31. Two large-scale exhibits are featured: the classic 12 Days of Christmas depicting each day in the beloved carol with 25-foot tall elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos; and the return of The Pauline and Austin Neuhoff Christmas Village with 14 old world European-style shops in a magical setting. The Arboretum is open for extended hours starting Nov. 27. Timed tickets are required and can be purchased online at — Terry Lendecker
