Getting into the Spirit

Let me start this post by letting you know that I think that Thanksgiving gets the shaft when it comes to retailers.  I am just as annoyed as most of you that Target puts their Christmas decoration up the day after Halloween.  I get it, Thanksgiving isn't really a retailers ideal holiday but can't you at least give us a week of November before you start putting the pressure on us to start buying Christmas presents.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way I want to let you all know that It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas here on Main Street and our House is brimming with The Christmas Spirit.

This week business owners and private owners have been breaking out the boxes of Christmas decorations and we are right there with them.  Wreaths have been hung in the windows with care in hope that local residents will soon be there:)

Why?  Because this weekend is the annual Christmas in The Historic District Festival.  Starting Friday evening Main Street will be closed down and filled with all sort of fun stuff like food vendors, craft tents, horse drawn carriage rides, and bouncy slides.  There will be a Christmas Tree lighting Friday night M.C.ed by Abe Lincoln (don't ask me why, I think it has something to do with the towns history with the Underground Railroad) followed by a parade Saturday at noon and three full days worth of eating any sort of festival food you can get your hands on.

All right outside our front door!!!

The festival is great exposure for local business so it is no wonder they are working so hard to stand out from the crowd!

They have even started closing down the side streets to start putting up the vendor tents.  So Exciting!!
