These New England towns are straight out of a holiday movie
These are the best Christmas light displays in New England, according to Travel + Leisure
Jenna Bush Hager is used to being on TV, but on a recent trip to Maine she felt like she was in a movie.
“I basically walked into a Hallmark Christmas movie this weekend,” she told co-host Hoda Kotb on Monday’s episode of “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna.”
Bush Hager attended the annual Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude, which this year took place from December 1-11. The celebration includes streetcar rides, carol singing, a street festival, lobster bakes, crafts, fireworks, and more. When Kotb asked how she knew about the event, Bush Hager replied that she had read about it.
“We had an adventure and I have to say we really got into the Christmas spirit,” Bush Hager said. “If you could have seen…the Christmas tree had lobster rings on it.” Santa Claus has arrived on a lobster boat.
She was present with her husband, Henry Hager, and their three children, as well as her cousins and nieces. They wore matching gingerbread jumpsuits. She shared photos from the trip on her Instagram Stories.
“It was as festive as it gets,” Bush Hager said.
Bush Hager is of course no stranger to Maine. The Bush Complex is located in Kennebunkport.
“By the way, Maine isn’t hot,” she told Kotb. “It’s crunchy. I took off my coat just for the hit.
She was referring to photos she shared of the group reunited during the fireworks in their matching jumpsuits.
Kennebunkport was named one of the best Christmas destinations in America by Conde Nast Traveler and one of the most “magical” winter cities in the United States by TripsToDiscover.com.
