It's almost that time of year and Gaylord Opryland Resort is already in the Christmas spirit! The hotel hosts an ice sculpture exhibit every winter that showcases a Christmas theme. This year, A Christmas Story is the theme, and I couldn't be more excited! That is my favorite Christmas movie and I'm even excited to put out my A Christmas Story  decorations for the first time in years!

After purchasing my ticket, I did a little research. I didn't know there was a group from Harbin, China, that are the ice sculpting artists. They live in an area that stays below freezing half of the year. Oh, I like cold but not like that.

If you are a cold-natured person, beware. The ICE! exhibit is a chilly 9 degrees. Yes, you read that right: nine. At least they give you festive heavy blue coats that block out the cold.

Look at the beauty of ICE!

These are just a few of the sculptures. I love that the Bumpus hounds made it, and that turkey! To purchase tickets you can visit here.
