DALLAS - It was Christmas in June as nearly 20 kids between the ages of three and seven gathered in the Peacock Terrace at Hilton Anatole to meet with Santa Claus and share their ideas for the perfect Christmas celebration. All of the suggestions provided by this Children's Advisory Panel will be considered for Hilton Anatole's upcoming "Sparkle!" holiday festival that will take place at the hotel November 29 through December 31, 2013.

After enjoying delicious kid-friendly treats and being entertained by dancing sugar plum fairies and live toy soldiers, the kids presented their ideas for "Sparkle!" directly to Santa. Some of the suggestions Saint Nick will ponder include having elves skate with the guests on the outdoor skating rink, serving s'mores and candy apples during the holiday season, inviting children's choirs from local schools to sing and much more.

"We want this holiday season at Hilton Anatole to be the most memorable yet," said General Manager Harold Rapoza. "All of the ideas the kids presented to Santa Claus will be taken into serious consideration and we hope to implement as many of them as we can and make kids' Christmas visions come true."

"Sparkle!" is the newest addition to the hotel's month-long holiday celebration, Christmas at Hilton Anatole. "Sparkle!" will transform the scenic seven-acre Sculpture Garden into a winter wonderland, complete with an outdoor ice skating rink, nightly live entertainment and thousands of twinkling lights in the garden's stately trees.

Rates at Hilton Anatole during the "Sparkle!" holiday festival start at $99 per night. To book, visit www.hiltonanatole.com.
