  1. It is so wonderful to see communities come together for the holidays. Food and music, it doesn’t get better than that. Happy Holidays to everyone!

  2. I’m always in it for the food to be honest. I love finding new treats. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to see everyone out, but finding new tastes is my goal.

    1. That is a very clever way to discover new treats because you get to taste them and then decide if you want to make them. Very smart.

  3. I live in a town of just over 10,000 people and we love to attend the events that happen here. We are always involved in the Christmas parade. Its great to see all the people and our town come together.

  4. So fun! I love visiting festivals in other towns. Our town has a very cool First Friday event the first Friday of every month. Each month has a different theme but they are all fun and a great way to enjoy the downtown area.

    1. It is great that your town does a First Friday event of the month and that the theme changes. Sounds like it brings the community together.

  5. I try to take part in the holiday activities around town. One of my favorites is getting together with friends and we would take a walk ( this is a group of walkers that I hang around with.) and see the Christmas decorations. After our walk, we would meet back up at our cars, and have hot chocolate and cookies. I suppose this starting and ending spot can be someone’s house.

  6. I love big cities, BUT it is also nice to check out events in smaller towns. It is more charming and definitely less crowded! We recently went to a really nice lights display in a beautiful park tucked away in a neighborhood. Most people wouldn’t go out of their way to find it and miss out!
