Christmas in Davidson


An annual holiday tradition since 1988, Christmas in Davidson kicks off the holiday season offering three magical nights of holiday family fun. Each night, Main Street Books will offer complimentary warm drinks and treats to anyone who wishes to defrost while browsing and meeting local authors. 

Main Street Books will host a book drive each night for the Ada Jenkins Center’s longest running program, LEARN Works, which serves local elementary and middle school students with academic needs by providing free enrichment activities and partnering with families, schools, and volunteers to support academic progress. LEARN Works also serves area adults through GED/High School Equivalency and ESL classes. Merry revelers who pass through the store during Christmas in Davidson are invited to purchase elementary and middle grade books for donation to LEARN Works students.

In front of the store, meet Garret Weyr, author of the middle grades read The Language of Spells about Grisha, a dragon in a world that's forgotten how to see him, and Maggie, an unusual child who thinks she's perfectly ordinary. They're an unlikely duo—but magic, like friendship, is funny. Sometimes it chooses those who might not look so likely. And magic has chosen Grisha and Maggie to solve the darkest mystery in Vienna.

Inside the store, pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate, write a letter to Santa, and enjoy the festive sounds of students at Learn Music, as they regal visitors with holiday tunes and original jams from 6 to 9 p.m.
