christmas in your town!

In a few places by me they have already put up the christmas lights ready for the big switch on come november....

Im looking forward to the xmas parade here in swansea, which i believe will be on nov 15th. Last year was awful...we had to queue up early with the kids and it was cold and it did'nt help being pregnant and being told there was a half hr delay in the parade actully starting...then being dissapointed with the lights....our council needs me on the xmas committee, i think id do a better job. Not being big headed of course....
I think a lot more could be done for the season.

What is your town like?

We have lots of festivities in our town. Every year in downtown Dallas they have the Neiman Marcus Adolphus Parade that airs on tv. There are also plenty of neighborhoods that go all out with their Christmas decorations. They have the whole block decorated in themes. We be sure to visit them all every Christmas. They also have the big tree lighting ceremonies. I can't wait!

My little town doesn't do much. They have a parade of carolers through downtown and put up christmas banners on the light posts. Indianapolis decorates the circle in downtown indy. They string lights from the top of the monument to make it look like a big christmas tree and then they have a big tree lighting ceremony. I have never been to it but I watch it on tv every year.

I live in a little town but we put a wreath on every light post in town... decorate all the "Welcome To" signs with lights, trees, and a wreath... usually see it around 3rd week in Nov.

Our town has a Parade of Lights that is always beautiful. It's always the last Sunday of November and lasts about an hour and a half with Santa pulling up the rear! The park is also decorated by all the local businesses in town and we drive through it (more than once) while listening to Christmas music.

Kelly-a little tip is to go to the start of the parade early, never very busy and you get a real close up of the parade and then make your way straight to the tree for the switch on then the wounderland. That way you see it all but miss being crammed in the croweds further up.

Ive often thought about contacting the council about helping out for christmas, though its all down to budget so they say. Last few years we aint had anyone with santa to turn on the lights (big names in past like the cheeky girls).

When i make my millions im gona make Swansea the place to be at christmas-beta than New York.

Pittsburgh has "Light-Up Night" usually the Friday before Thanksgiving, followed by a parade on Saturday... a local department store (Horne's) always had a giant tree display strung up the outside of the building on the corner... thankfully, Highmark Blue Cross (who now owns the building as Horne's went out of business in the early 90's) has continued the tradition...
