First of all, I love the images of a colonial Christmas. I don't know what it is....it's just the perfect setting to me. I think I would adore Colonial Williamsburg at Christmas. I loved it when it wasn't Christmas! These are so wonderful:
And of course....the Nutcracker! I enjoy going to the ballet, but just listening to the music at home is wonderful. When the overture comes on, it's just beautiful.
So here is something that I have come to appreciate and love in Jackson:
Yes, Mistletoe Marketplace is one of my very favorite events. First, it comes in November, which gets everyone in the spirit early. Second, the vendors are really unique. Expensive, but unique. I think I might treat myself this year to one or two things, just because. I think I'll start saving. It's just a wonderful experience.
Christmas fireplaces!!! There is nothing better than a fireplace and a Christmas tree.
And then we have the wonderful television specials, including (but NOT limited to)
Celtic Woman Christmas Celebration. I still have this on my DVR from last Christmas and watch it all the time. Combining Celtic music and Christmas is just.....perfect.
Santa Claus is Coming to Town! A classic, and probably my favorite of the original Christmas specials.
And you can't forget Rudolph! So adorable....
My favorite Christmas movie:
Part of me will always believe in him :o)
And then there's Jesus.....
Leave it to Him to have a birthday on the best holiday ever :o) And my whole soul believes in Him!
Merry Christmas, just a little early :o)
