Holidays are about family, friends, food and making memories. This year my family gets to experience the Knott’s Merry Farm at the Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott’s Merry Farm has been a Southern California Holiday Tradition since 1985 and they celebrate the holiday season November 22nd through January 4th 2015.
