Catch a Performance of A Christmas Carol

Watching a stage production of A Christmas Carol is a time-honored tradition – and you don’t need to travel all the way down to NYC to see a beautiful and high-quality performance! All month long, there will be performances at the Geva Theatre Centre, where you can take in the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his encounters with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Tickets can be purchased on the Geva Theatre Center website.

Experience It’s a Wonderful Life in Seneca Falls

If you are up for a mini road trip, we recommend visiting Seneca Falls, NY – which is only about an hour southeast of Rochester! Seneca Falls was supposedly the inspiration for the town of Bedford Falls in the holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life. Throughout the month of December, the town hosts numerous festivals that will help you get into the holiday spirit – including the It’s a Wonderful Life Festival, which runs from December 13 to December 15 this year. There is also the It’s a Wonderful Life Museum, which boasts items from the personal collections of the film’s actors. And who knows, you might even hear some bells ring while you are in town.

From all of us here at Auction Direct USA (both our Rochester, NY and Raleigh, NC locations), we wish you the happiest of holiday seasons!
