Granbury, Texas delights in making a big fuss over her guests. And her holiday dress is stunning: a chill in the
air; the centuries-old downtown square awash with lights; stylish shops, award-winning restaurants and
historic homes preened and decorated for the season.
This is a time when Texas hospitality is irrepressible and the gracious people of Granbury welcome visitors
into their historic private residences for the 38TH Annual Granbury A Candlelight Holiday Tour of Homes.
Granbury, Texas, a place where Texas history lives every day, celebrates its culture once a year in a truly
magical way. For the Granbury Candlelight Tour of Homes, the community bands together in an assemblage
of lights, carols, Christmas treats and carriage rides. Moreover, a selected group of citizens open their
private, historic homes to the public. Between volunteer docents and the owner's themselves, a story unfolds
of each home's rich and unique story. This year, Texas historical sites such as the Hood County Courthouse,
the Granbury Opera House and the Nutt House Historic Hotel will be included on the tour, as well as Granbury
museums and historic churches.

The Granbury Living Christmas Cards™
December 10-11, 2021
an outdoor, interactive family event on the historic town square in Granbury, Texas. This holiday
extravaganza, which takes place on the second weekend in December, is Lakeside Baptist Church’s FREE gift
to the community, presented in partnership with the city of Granbury and Hood County. The festivities last
all day long and into the night, culminating with our “super-sized” Christmas cards coming to life.
While the cards may be viewed during the day, the real magic happens Friday and Saturday nights, starting at
6:30 PM.
The Cards – These cards are huge (a combined painted surface area of over 3000 sq. feet)! Each card depicts a
different thematic scene from Christmas. As you visit each Granbury Living Christmas Card™, it will come to
life with singers, actors, and dancers who interact with the audience. These living cards provide a one-of-akind
experience, which one patron summed up eloquently: “I feel like I’m in a Hallmark movie!”
The festivities will take you on a whirlwind tour from sleigh bells and chestnuts to the Bethlehem manger,
where the true hope of Christmas can be found. With the backdrop of the idyllic town of Granbury, Texas and
its friendly merchants, you and your family are sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Christmas Carol yet, with audiences entering to find themselves guests at the funeral of Jacob Marley before
