By now most Thanksgiving leftovers are gone and December holiday preparations are in full swing. 

Every year on December 1st, you can count on the City of Fort Wayne being on full speed Holiday mode.  With the Festival of Trees, Festival of the Gingerbread, Holly Pops, Night of Lights, and several other yearly traditions going on in the city, it's hard NOT to get into the holiday spirit.

"The 2013 Festival of Gingerbread is off to a fantastic start, we've already had about 3,000 guests to this year's event."

Todd Pelfrey, Executive Director of the Fort Wayne History Center, says this year is special because they have a record 149 individual gingerbread creations, all made from small children to professional gingerbread contractors.

Katelyn and Joshua made a gingerbread house this year and say, "At my grandma and grandpa's."

With 2 weeks left of this year's festival at the History Center, you can visit a series of special programs, including a visit from Santa Claus, "Science of Sugary Structures", and a cookie decorating party.

The History Center is not the only place decking the halls.

"The Festival of Trees is very special because we have 54 well-decorated trees, lovingly decorated by everyone from school children to professional decorators, and they're all different and highly desirable."
