Let the season begin with a Christmas in the country back-roads auto tour!
This year I kicked off the Christmas season by helping my sister-in-law in her lovely little shop. She put together a fun event for the community and local businesses, “Christmas in the Country Auto Tour”. The event was a wonderful success with a steady stream of holiday shoppers and revelers enjoying themselves despite the cold cloudy day. The stops included a seasonal open house run by a collection of crafty women, a specialty store, a small consignment mall and Just What I want, antiques, gifts and collectibles. Visitors had a wonderful selection of handcrafted, home-baked and vintage gifts to pick from; they also enjoyed live music, wine tasting and even pictures with reindeer (mini horses wearing antlers).
From big cities, small towns and country back-roads, it’s the time of year to get out and celebrate our local communities. For our little community the Christmas in the Country Auto Tour, was a wonderful success and, for me, a great way to kick off the Christmas season; I’m already looking forward to next year’s tour.
