Leave it to the far reaches of mid­dle Amer­ica to pre­serve the quirky ghosts of Christ­mas Bri­tish. Gar­ri­son in north­west North Dakota be­came the state’s Christ­mas Cap­i­tal by sat­u­rat­ing its streets, shops and homes in all things A Christ­mas Carol (for 25 years straight now). That’s no small un­der­tak­ing for a town of 1,532 res­i­dents. Join lo­cals for high tea on open­ing week­end, then en­ter some of Gar­ri­son’s most sto­ried homes, in­clud­ing the Merry House of Mys­tery. The Queen El­iz­abus dou­ble-decker of­fers a tour of lights and whisks vis­i­tors off to a pa­rade and per­for­mances star­ring Tiny Tim and Ebenezer. dick­ens­fes­ti­val.com
