Where to Find Christmas in Duluth: Dinner, Services,Treats, Decor and More!


During the holidays I think about the traditions my family keeps and the memories we have made, especially in a year as this. Almost all of the memories are centered around food, music, church, and my mom’s skills of making everything beautiful and everybody feeling special. If you are like me, you relate to Cindy Lou-Who and find yourself singing “Where are you Christmas, why cant I find you?”

We may not be able to join with all of our loved ones this holiday season, but we can still make an effort to create new memories, traditions, and to pass 

Hope, Love, Joy and Peace

on to our families and friends. Duluth Mom is here to equip, inspire, and encourage you to do just that. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Be well and stay safe.

Andrea Jang
A lake girl at heart, Andrea is thrilled to be a Duluthian! She lives in the Hillside with her husband, daughter (plus two angel babies that are with them in spirit), and two rescue pups. As a bi-racial and multicultural family, they have hopes and dreams of visiting her husband’s family in South Korea someday soon. Tiny joys that make her heart happy include: doodling, searching for sea glass, coffee with friends, fiber art, plants, a good vintage thrift find, music and great food & drinks. She also finds purpose in serving on the Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Justice (DEIJ) committee at her daughter’s school, and also on City Mom Collective’s Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) committee. You will find her building community, connections and friendships in the northland as the owner of Duluth Mom. She invites you to visit her on Instagram or on LinkedIn.
