For the past 6 months, my boys have asked me when we’re going back to Knott’s Berry Farm. So as a little Holiday surprise my husband I kept it a secret that we were going to Disneyland this past Saturday and Knott’s on Sunday.

We had a wonderful time at Knott’s. I think it was because Peppermint Patty, my favorite Peanut’s character, was the first character we saw. (I love Peanuts. When I was a kid I collected books of Peanuts comic strips.)

We were at Knott’s for a special media day and were treated to a special Knott’s Merry Farm holiday party. We won this awesome Charlie Brown Christmas toy.

There were a lot of treats for us, but the most impressive was the maple syrup lollipop made by this gentleman.

He poured maple syrup over the ice and then swirled it around a popsicle stick. It was delightful!

Before and after the party we rode on some scary and some not so scary rides. I rode a couple of roller coaster that day and the log ride where I got soaked, but I had the most on the family-friendly Calico Mine Ride and the Butterfield Stagecoach rides.

As luck would have it, it started to rain just as we were heading into the theater for It’s Christmas Snoopy ice skating show. The skating was really impressive. I would love to know the backstory on the skaters who did some pretty amazing tricks.

The most pleasantly surprising part of the day was that I was able to do a little Christmas shopping at Knott’s. I bought this pretty ornament for my niece from one of the shops in Ghost Town.

If you’re interested in visiting Knott’s during the holidays, you may want to check out the Knott’s New Year’s Eve Celebration. It’s open until 1 a.m., but if you get there during the day you can see a special Camp Snoopy show called Happy New Year, Charlie Brown! During the evening, there will be salsa and line dancing, a family friendly magician, and Snoopy’s Magical Night of Lights.

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but was given tickets to the park.
