“No matter what, I always make it home for Christmas. I love to go to my Tennessee Mountain Home and invite all of my nieces and nephews and their spouses and kids and do what we all like to do—eat, laugh, trade presents and just enjoy each other…and sometimes I even dress up like Santa Claus!”—Dolly Parton

There are no words for what our Smoky Mountain community is like come the holiday season. Because there is so much fun to be had in our area, our team at AFC Urgent Care Sevierville wants to make sure you stay in good health this holiday season in order to not miss a thing!

‘Tis the Season to Be in the Smokies!

Bright lights. Small town feel! Winterfest in Sevierville kicked off on Nov. 6, but there is still plenty of time to partake in all the festivities, including viewing the Smoky Mountain Winterfest lights with loved ones and taking advantage of all the shopping opportunities.

Because you’re going to be out and about with others, make sure that you wash your hands often. Door knobs, doors and other items frequently touched by others will be a hot-spot for germs this winter.

And the last thing you want when you’re visiting the Smokies is a nasty cold or the flu. Therefore, any chance you get to visit a restroom or sink, wash your hands with soap and water. If water isn’t readily available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer will do in a pinch.

Are you looking to start a new holiday tradition with family? Why not stop by Dollywood and visit in time to take in the Smoky Mountain Christmas? An event that is sure to be fun for the entire family, Dolly Parton has decorated Dollywood like you have never seen before! Between the Parade of Many Lights and various Christmas shows that help to tell the story of the true meaning of this time of year, you are truly going to be walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Just make sure you dress appropriately when visiting, since many attractions at Dollywood are outside, and you won’t want to catch anything but a spectacular show while in town! Drink plenty of water, walk as much as you can, and eat healthy, balanced meals in order to keep your energy and immunity up!

The holiday season is in full force, and your health needs to be able to keep up! Whether you’re a visitor or live in our area, stop by AFC Urgent Care Sevierville the moment you feel under the weather so we can help you get back to enjoying the holiday season here in the Smokies.
