Drum roll and get your musical ears please. I am happy to announce that one lucky Frog Mom reader will win 2 tickets to attend Deck the Hall on Sunday December 4, 2011! If you have never been, Deck the Hall is one of the most beloved holiday traditions of the San Francisco Symphony and an amazing experience for families. After an hour-long show that blends music, dance and stage performances, kids and adults alike mingle in the lobby where craft tables, cookies and refreshments await them. Kids can even get to meet favorite holiday characters!
The first time we took our girls to Deck the Hall, they were respectively 1 and 3 years old. Though the 1 year old clearly didn’t get to participate much, she kept silent during the music part and clapped with me at the end. My 3 year old, on the other hand, was in awe. All these kids dressed to the nines, the festive atmosphere, the tall decorated trees in the lobby, the cool crafts after the concert – she didn’t want to leave, ever.
That year we enjoyed a particularly charming reading of “Twas The Night Before Christmas” with puppets and we cracked up at the holiday songs by the Beach Blanket Babylon cast – ah, the dancing Christmas trees! It was my kids’ first “classical music” experience and a fun one to boot. As you can guess, I loved it.
Now it’s my pleasure to be able to offer this amazing experience to my readers. I’ll add that the show sells out every year so these tickets that I got are extra precious tickets. Plus, they’re upper orchestra tickets (value $72), a fantastic seating section where kids can enjoy the show fully right in front of the orchestra and stage.
How do you win?

Deadline: Sunday November 27, 2011, 11.59pm PST.
I’ll pick a winner using a random system on Monday November 28, 2011, giving the lucky person just enough time to plan for a incredible Sunday December 4th with their special little person. Keep a weather eye on the Frog Mom Facebook Page as it’s where I’ll announce the winner on Monday morning.
Good luck everyone and for the record, my favorite holiday song is “White Christmas” with a glass of champagne!
