So Thankful that Christmas is almost here!!

Every year when December 1st rolls around, I get a little anxious knowing another year is winding down. We are celebrating our 11th Christmas season here in Branson.   Oh, the changes we have seen here throughout the years, and the wonderful people who have come across our path.  The changes have been positive for Branson though!  These changes and additions have given our guests more to enjoy and make wonderful memories with their kids, grandkids, or a much deserved getaway!!  We are so THANKFUL for each and everyone of our guests throughout the years!!  Our guests have become our friends, and we feel very blessed.  

The Christmas season is winding down for Rosebud Inn.  Our last night for reservations will be December 17th, so please call and schedule your getaway...only 2 more weeks left!!

As we celebrate the Christmas season, please don't forget the real reason we celebrate.  The shopping and gift giving can get very overwhelming at times and it's easy to loose focus, but please remember the One Who Gave His Gift to Us!!!

Merry Christmas,
Your Rosebud Inn Staff

November is the Month of Thanksgiving...Celebrating Christmas too!!

Yes, November is the Month of Thanksgiving, even though Branson is decorated for Christmas as of November 1st.  What a great time of year to reflect on all the things we are thankful for!  I am very thankful for good health, great people to work with, a job, family and friends, and I could go on and on...  I would encourage you to take some time and thank the people and loved ones in your life who you are thankful for.

We have our decorations up for Christmas, and specifically a Nativity Scene, so we can remember the focus of Christmas, as Jesus is the Reason for celebrating this Season!!  All the theaters are celebrating Christmas in their shows and they are doing a great job!  Silver Dollar City has up over 4 million lights, and you don't want to miss the experience of An Old Time Christmas.  Ride the Ducks has a great time on their sleigh ride duck-style, "See the sights and the lights as this sing-along holiday adventure takes you through our own forest of twinkling lights!"  The Festival of Lights has a great display, along with Shepherd of the Hills.  Lots to do and see in Branson, but don't put it off...Come see us today!!

The Ozarks in October

This awesome picture was taken out by the College of the Ozarks yesterday, close to Branson.  It's a beautiful time of year, here in the Ozarks!!  Branson is currently changing over to celebrate the Christmas Season.  Our theaters will be changing over to their Christmas shows, and then next week Silver Dollar City will change over to "Old Time Christmas".

You don't want to miss the last few days of the National Harvest Festival, which runs thru Saturday, October 29th, out at Silver Dollar City.  Silver Dollar City will be closed from October 30th - November 4th to decorate and put up all those beautiful lights for Old Time Christmas, which will run from November 5th - December 30th.  What an exciting time of year for Branson!!  

Rumor USE to have it that Branson shut down this last week of October, but that is just not true anymore.  Theaters are still open this week, and there is plenty of shopping during the 6 days Silver Dollar City closes to decorate. Theaters will start their Christmas shows November 1st - Clay Cooper's, Jim Stafford, Presley's, Miracle of Christmas at Sight N Sound Theater, just to name a few....  Make your plans now to enjoy and celebrate this time of year. Branson is one of a kind when it comes to celebrating the "Reason for the Season", and keeping Christ in Christmas!!  See you soon...

Beautiful Time of Year in the Ozarks

What a Beautiful time of the year in the Ozarks, with all the trees turning colors for the Fall!!  As I look out this morning, it's a beautiful site to see the contrast of colors all over the trees.  With some trees losing leaves faster and other trees slowly changing.  It's raining today, but we really need it.  The weather for the rest of the week is Sunny and mid 70's to the low 80's.  Perfect weather!!

It amazes me that in a few weeks, we will be decorating for the Christmas Season here in Branson. We get to celebrate the Christmas season from November 1st thru December!!  This is the only town that I know of, who celebrates the Reason for the Season, Who is Jesus Christ!!!  Silver Dollar City will be completely glowing with Christmas lights and all the theaters will change their shows to Christmas themes and music, which will really get you in the Christmas mood.  Lot's of shopping at the outlet stores, and the stores at the Landing, will also get you ready for the Christmas season!!
