    Besides Leavenworth, Washington (and we don't mean Washington, D.C.), we can't think of a more picturesque town to celebrate the season than Middleburg, Va.

    Christmas in Middleburg gets under way with the O' Holy Night! Tree Lighting Ceremony at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, then picks up again on Saturday Dec. 1, with a day devoted to everything Christmas in Virginia's horse country.

    A hundred red-coated riders on horseback will take to the streets, with their loyal hounds by their sides during a Christmas parade also featuring llamas and alpacas.

    You'll also find hayrides, a craft fair, choir performances and more -- see the complete schedule here.

    Capping off the festivities: the Christmas in Middleburg Wine Crawl. The progressive-style wine tasting features Virginia wines with tastings at locations around town, including the Barrel Oak tasting room, the Red Fox Inn and the Middleburg Country Inn. 

    Middleburg, located in Loudoun County, is about an hour and 15 minutes from downtown D.C.
