The holidays are coming up soon, and American Girl stores are having events to mark the occasion! Every day for 12 days, I will be posting all the holiday events at American Girl stores nationwide. Today, we're focusing on the New York store. (Ironic, considering I'm multitasking right now and watching the Miraculous New York special for the 1000th time while blogging. We're doing nothing at school so I figured I'd engage in my special interests during our free history class!)
Note: If you want to participate in any of these events, according to city law you must provide either proof of vaccination for 12 and up and ID for 18 and up.

Afterward, celebrate your wreath-making skills in our café with a meal that will include a beverage, shareable appetizer, and entrée, and top it off with our signature mousse flowerpot. Each girl will receive a special goody bag."
