We didn't have one for a few years because of Covid but this year the Christmas Parade is returning. I will probably just watch it on the the local tv channel rather then sit out in the cold. I use to love taking my children to it when they were little. They would have their letters written for Santa and the mail men and women would pick them up along the route. They would anxiously wait for Santa's arrival. They are some of my favorite holiday memories. We have an evening parade so it is very pretty with all the lights on the floats and all the beautiful Christmas music. There are three different parades over the next few weeks in the communities surrounding the city. I can't believe that Christmas really isn't all that far away. I find the 2022 just flew by. Do you have a Christmas Parade in your area?

Your Christmas Parades sound so wonderful, I'd love to experience these around the approaching holiday! Yes, we have a short parade just before Christmas, with the lighting of our town Christmas tree. I haven't gone yet, because our weather is so bitter cold in December, standing along main street!

We have a party the day after Thanksgiving downtown, called Light Up Louisville. They turn the city tree and holiday lights on in the evening, but it’s an all-afternoon party. That’s as close as we get, I guess, because we’re a (cough-cough) big city.

I always loved taking our son to the parade as well as to the lighting of the Christmas tree in the park light up from bulbs representing donations to our local hospitals. it was always such a magical evening. Our city had the big parade already, but the many little villages within the city still have to put their parades on. Most take place at night although the one nearest to us is during the daytime.
