I love, love, love November and December in Coldspring, Texas. Chilly weather, fire pit, s’mores, falling leaves and the little town of Coldspring does Christmas for weeks!
First, there will be the Trade Days November 23. That means little tents set up on the courthouse square selling hand made items and food. It also means my favorite thrift store on the planet will be open. Woo Hoo
November 30 is the town lighting event. All the shops in town stay open late and at dark they all turn their Christmas lights on at the same time. We stand out on the porches of the shops, drink hot chocolate and Santa passes out candy canes.
December 8th there is an event I look forward to all year; the Christmas Home tour. This year we will be visiting the homes of Cape Royale. I am lobbying for my buddy, The Social Planner, to get her home on the tour next year. It is a chance to see beautifully decorated homes, meet the lovely ladies of the community and eat yummy snacks. I am going to be bringing my camera this year those of you who live too far away can see how clever those ladies are. I will be going with a group of friends and we have a great time.
December 14 will be the lighted evening parade. It is small town- Americana at its finest. The football team, church groups, the FFA and local dignitaries are all riding in lighted floats.
