Christmas in Oklahoma

Although Oklahoma was the last US state in the union to make Christmas an official holiday (in 1907, the year they became a state) they have been playing catch-up ever since with a full array of holiday events and festivals throughout the season.

Check out what's going on around the Sooner State during December with holiday entertainment featuring light shows, music, dancing, parades, - and if you're traveling through Oklahoma City, don't miss the Downtown in December celebration offering a month-long Christmas extravaganza.
