'Tis the season to be jolly about all the great towns in Monmouth & Ocean Counties who make us all feel so festive with their decorations, storefronts, Christmas trees, and gazebos. And a special shout out to a Monmouth County town that has once again been named among the best Christmas towns in the state. Do you know which town it is?

We know you made some immediate guesses like you always do. As a matter of fact, I did the same in an article not too long ago, and in it, I mentioned this town as one that should be considered. I was reacting to an article that named Cape May the most beautiful Christmas town in New Jersey.

This time around, however, in an article on Only In Your State, there were towns beyond Cape May that made the list of the 9 best holiday towns in New Jersey, and dancing between Princeton, Atlantic City, and Smithville was a lovely Monmouth County town named Red Bank.

Yes! A local town gets a well-deserved nod on one of these lists, and it warms my heart to know it did. Red Bank really deserves it. So do about a dozen other Monmouth/Ocean towns, but we'll take what we can get this time around.

There are awesome events in town for kids and adults alike this holiday season, like letters to Santa, the Window Wonderland, and Holiday Harmonies. Learn about these events and more at the Visit Red Bank website.

And in my opinion, Red Bank could slide up the list, and maybe we can get Asbury Park or Spring Lake in there, too. What do you think?
