Christmas traditions are a big deal to me, so I had to cover our annual tradition of the Christmas Horse parade. I'm fortunate that this has become a tradition for my friends as well. After the parade, the kids gather at the house for hot chocolate/yummies and some sort of craft.
There's something special about a small town parade. People on the sidewalk brave the cold to wave & yell out "Merry Christmas" to the paraders. I love it!
