But at Oregon Garden’s Christmas in the Garden, it’s been built for you—a pop-up ice skating rink, a traditional German Christmas market with 18 artisan vendors, a display of 400,000 Christmas lights in the forest, glühwein and hot chocolate, festive music and carolers, holiday foods, fire pits sprinkled throughout, live reindeer, pony rides and a visit from Santa.
