Main Street Christmas

Hubby Jaggar and I joined in the festivities in our town's Christmas Holiday celebration last night. The weather wasn't too cold, but chilly enough to enjoy the hot chocolate and cookies provided by the local businesses. (We were in the 70's earlier this week.  I wore sandals to work and short sleeves, so I welcomed the long sleeve weather.)
Luminaries lined the streets around the Cultural Arts Center.
 This Christmas tree is made from discarded books from the library. It is proudly displayed in the foyer of the Public Library.

A close up of the folded pages.  The person /people who folded all those pages had to have a ton of patients and great company.
A live Nativity with the reading of the biblical Christmas Story.  This was my favorite.  Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
The lighting of the Christmas Tree at the Methodist Church.
One of the decorated houses in the Historic District.  I love the charm of older homes.
We still have time to mail our letters to Santa.
Other activities included pictures with Santa in the Town Hall, crafts for the kids in the Cultural Arts Center, music on the lawn outside the Public Library by local school bands, a hayride from the church to the library, and a chit-chat with Mrs. Claus in one of the Activity rooms.
The crowd was large, but not so large that one couldn't enjoy the the experience. 
What does your town/city do to celebrate the season?
Thanks for stopping by~
