Experience Wonder and Joy of Christmas and Hanukkah: Get Away for Holidays in Savannah Georgia USA.

SAVANNAH Georgia (November 19, 2013) -- Too often life's joys are bypassed or overlooked. Holiday joys in Savannah are magical! Romantic Inns in Savannah invite you to spend a few days in Savannah at Hanukkah and Christmas time.

We have joy! The secret? Spontaneity is often at the heart of joy in Savannah.

Even on Christmas day, there is much to do! Sure, it's that rare time when shops, museums, state and national parks are closed, sightseeing tours are on pause, and water taxi shuttles are docked. Families are celebrating.

Here the holidays are opportune times to simply slow your pace. Wander. Wonder. Ramble about. Our friendly southerners suggest that you mosey or gallivant with no particularly place to be, at no particular time.

Below are some ideas where we think you might find joy in Savannah. You'll notice we have enlisted some amazing sages!

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” ― John Keats, Endymion: A Poetic Romance
1. Savannah is a colonial town, so you'll see more greenery than lights at Christmas time. The beautiful mansion on Chippewa Square is one of our favorite lighted trees, and The Paris Market on Broughton Street always has whimsical window displays.

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” -- Mark Twain

2. It's joyful to pair things up -- photography and taking in the friendly, local vibe; discovering the favorite spots of local by way of a progressive dinner; seeing resurrection fern at Christmas; cocktails and dessert with someone dear, giving a gift to a stranger, or doing the unexpected -- taking in an art museum and lunch in the same spot!
“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” ― Rabindranath Tagore

3. We honor America's heroes when we take time to honor their service. The landscapes of the famous Savannah squares (garden parks) are dotted with monuments to heroes. On the Savannah Riverfront is the globe-shaped World War II Monument.
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” ― Marianne Williamson

4. Bring your camera! One true joy in Savannah is what you'll see, even those things you don't expect -- the architecture, flower and tree landscapes, the panoramic vistas on the beach and waterways, the whimsy of birds and squirrels at play, and the many places of historical stories. 
“My soul doth magnify the Lord,
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”
― Mary (mother of Jesus), Holy Bible: King James Version

5. Attend an historic Savannah church or the Mickve Israel Synagogue -- the third oldest in North America. Many of Savannah's beautiful places of worship in the National Landmark Historic District were built in the 19th century. We think you'll find pure joy realizing the sacrifices made to worship in beautiful places.
“Music... will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

6. Take in a musical at the historic Savannah Theatre, located on Chippewa Square. Magic happens when the lively, talented performers frolic onto the historic stage wearing beautiful costumes and bursting with joyful music!
"There are two ways to spread the light. You can be the candle or you can be the mirror that reflects it!" -- Edith Wharton

7. Joy is found where one stays at one of our Romantic Inns in Savannah. Make no mistake: we want you to stay with us! However, if you adore our ideas, we'll be happy just to know that at least we were the candle and the mirror, pointing the way! 

Wherever you are, we wish you joy this Christmas and Hanukkah season. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah!
