Are looking for the most festive place to be in Nacogdoches every day before Christmas? We are down to only 19 days (as of this writing) before Christmas 2021, so let's get planning.

The oldest town in Texas is one of the best places to celebrate the holidays. The Nacogdoches Public Library has lots of events leading up to Christmas that are perfect for the season.

Now that the parade and fireworks are over, don't count out Nacogdoches as the place to get that Christmas Cheer. Here are three family-friendly events that you can take part in with the library.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Cookies 

Do you have a fantastically gaudy Christmas sweater that you always wear? This is the place to wear it while you make mini replicas of it in cookie form.

It would really bring your tragic Christmas sweater to the forefront of any friendly competition if you were passing out cookies to match.

This free all-ages event is coming up on Wednesday, December 15th, 2021 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the Nacogdoches Public Library at 1112 North Street Nacogdoches, Texas 75961.

Free Showing Of The Polar Express 

The library has gotten together with their friends at Nacogdoches Historic Sites to show and celebrate "The Polar Express". Come at 5 pm and join Ms. Emily for a quick storytime and reading of the book.

No showing of "The Polar Express" would be complete without hot chocolate and sweet treats. These will be provided free of charge.

Be there Friday, December 17th, 2021 from 6 pm to 8 pm for the movie.

Gingerbread House Decorating

They are calling this a "Mock Gingerbread House Decorating" because they will be using graham crackers instead of gingerbread for this event.

This event is on Tuesday, December 21st, 2021 from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm. Even though all of these events are free, they do ask that you register in advance. Click here for more details.

These events are for all ages and will all be at the Nacogdoches Public Library.

LOOK: Food history from the year you were born

From product innovations to major recalls, Stacker researched what happened in food history every year since 1921, according to news and government sources.
 

LOOK: The top holiday toys from the year you were born

With the holiday spirit in the air, it’s the perfect time to dive into the history of iconic holiday gifts. Using national toy archives and data curated by The Strong from 1920 to today, Stacker searched for products that caught hold of the public zeitgeist through novelty, innovation, kitsch, quirk, or simply great timing, and then rocketed to success.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
