Happy December, everyone!
Okay, so I'm a couple days late, but hey...
I'm still excited, aren't you? ♥
Today marks the beginning of a very special event
that takes place on Nantucket every December.....
From the evening of December 3rd continuing until the 5th,
the island of Nantucket is transformed into a Dickensian wonderland!
The holiday festivities first kick off with the Chamber's annual tree lighting
ceremony in which hundreds of trees lining the island are officially lit.
|Beautiful Main Street|
Other events throughout the weekend will include: Holiday story-telling,
caroling, decorating contests, walking tours, Christmas bazaars, house tours...
And how could I forget?
The big man himself, Santa Claus, accompanied by
his wife, will formally pay a visit to the island (from the help of a Coast Guard
vessel) on Saturday, parading up Main Street for a merry meet and greet!
So those of you who live in or around the Cape Cod
area, I strongly suggest you check it out!
... this is one Christmas memory
you won't soon forget!
