Enjoy the Holidays By Taking Part in Lake Geneva’s Winter Activities!

Geneva Hospitality would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays this season!

Winter Attractions around Lake Geneva

Skiing/Snowboarding - While spending your weekend in Lake Geneva, enjoy a day on the slopes at Alpine Valley Ski Hill. The ski hill is located approximately 15 minutes from Lake Geneva and will provide your whole family with a day of fun and excitement.

The ski hill offers 20 ski runs and 14 ski lifts on over 90 acres of property. This hill provides more beginner and intermediate ski experiences rather than advanced ones, making it perfect for a family consisting of all ages.

Alpine Valley offers both ski and snowboard rental equipment, as well ski and snowboard packages which include lessons for beginners. Rates are very reasonable priced as well.

Ice Fishing - No winter would be complete without spending a day on Geneva Lake ice fishing. So head on over to Lake Geneva and gear up for a weekend out on the lake.

Geneva Lake offers ice shanty rentals, as well as the largest selection of ice jigs and ice lures in Wisconsin, with over 80,000 in stock. You can even sign up for a guided ice fishing tour of Geneva Lake so you are sure to find the best spots for the fish you are looking to catch.

Sleigh Ride - What better way to experience the freshly fallen snow then to take a horse drawn sleigh ride though snow covered fields and trails?

Fantasy Hills Ranch, located just minutes from Lake Geneva, is now offering this favorite holiday activity starting daily at 9 am.

After your sleigh ride, enjoy a warm and toasty bonfire at the Ranch. Perfect for taking those winter chills away.

Snowmobiling – After Lake Geneva’s most recent snow fall, what better time is there than now to head to Lake Geneva and spend the weekend snowmobiling the trails of Walworth County?

Snowmobiling trails are located throughout Walworth County and connect to surrounding county trail systems. The maintenance, marking, and grooming of all the trails are performed by local snowmobile clubs, making for the most enjoyable trails around this area.

By joining a local snowmobiling club (a family membership is $25 annually) you will receive maps, badges, and state and local newsletter subscriptions. Also, a member of any club is welcome on any other club trail in Wisconsin.

So come spend the weekend in Lake Geneva and enjoy the beautifully groomed trails of Walworth County.

Christmas Around the World at Geneva Hospitality’s Resorts

Mike Ditka Resorts and The Cove of Lake Geneva – United States
Christmas celebrations in the United States usually begin between Thanksgiving Day leading up until the final days before December 25th, when you will begin to see Christmas trees covered in colorful lights, tinsel, and bright ornaments popping up inside houses. While exterior doorways, windows, roofs, and shrubs are covered in strings of lights, as well as life-sized reindeer, snowmen, Santas, and nativity scenes being showcased on people’s lawns. During this time of year it becomes a pastime for American people to drive or walk around neighborhoods during the evening to see the lights displayed on other’s homes.

Since Christmas Eve is not the official holiday here, most people have to work, but many companies hold Christmas parties and celebrations on this day. In the evening, many people finish adding final touches to their homes or visit with family members. Some people also attend a midnight mass at church and participate in singing carols.

After dinner on Christmas Eve, children head to bed early, but not before leaving out cookies and milk for Santa Claus, and maybe ever a carrot for Rudolf. The next morning they awake to find surprises under the tree from Santa Claus.

Christmas Day is then usually spent celebrating with family and friends.

Caracola Beach and Spa Resort – Isla Margarita
The religious celebrations begin on December 16th where an early morning mass (Misa de Aguinaldo) is held every morning leading up to December 24th when mass is held at midnight (Misa de Gallo).

On December 25th, Christmas Day, children awaken to find gifts around the Nativity Scene or Christmas tree. And their tradition has it that it is the Child Jesus who brings gifts to the Venezuelan children instead of Santa Claus.

The Christmas festivities officially come to an end on January 6th, the Day of the Reyes Magos, when children again will receive toys and candies. Christmas is the main holiday when all Venezuelan families come together and celebrate.

Palatinum Golf, Spa, and Sport Resort – Murcia, Spain
Christmas in Spain includes the usual Christmas festivities which can be found elsewhere, but there is one tradition that isn’t very common called Hogueras (bonfires), and it is a tradition that originated long before Christmas. It is the observance of the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, and the beginning of winter. During these bonfires, people jump over fires as a symbolic protection against illness.

The more common traditions include very elaborate Nacimiento (nativity scenes), Christmas trees, and incredible Christmas markets scattered around villages and cities. These markets include fruits, flowers, sweets, candles, decorations, and various types of handmade gifts.
Christmas Eve is interrupted at midnight by the ringing of bells calling the families to La Misa Del Gallo (The Mass of the Rooster).

On Christmas Day, children find gifts, not brought by Santa, but by the Three Wise Men.
Christmas in Spain continues for a few weeks past Christmas until January 6th. On January 5th, children place their shoes on their doorstep, and in the middle of the night, the three wise men pass leaving gifts behind. On January 6th, the day is celebrated with parades were candy and cakes are given out to children.
