Let the magic begin

After Santa flipped the switch

Ooh, aah - the town in it's Christmas finery

My favorite shop for gifts

Thanksgiving is over and it's time to celebrate my favorite season. Our little town has several wonderful yuletide traditions. On the Friday after Thanksgiving at sunset, people gather on the courthouse square to sing carols and "flip the switch" lighting up the courthouse and the buildings on the square. Georgetown has a beautiful square with beautiful buildings restored to their original grandeur. There are wonderful little shops with so many unique gifts and handcrafts, art galleries and restaurants. I love strolling around and seeing neighbors old and new. Here are just a few pictures from this annual event.
