Lebanon Christmas Festival

I live in Clarksville, but I work in Lebanon.  It is a lovely lovey historic city in Warren County Ohio.  The central business district is a collection of lovely old buildings, some dating back to the 1700s.  The shops are filled with quilts and antiques and the first weekend of December the main street hosts the Horse Carriage Parade.

There is one parade in the afternoon and another in the evening,  The nighttime one has all the carriages, and even some of the horses, covered with lights!


There are horses of all breeds, shapes and sizes.  Even a few mules, donkeys and I actually saw a goat out there this year.






I hadn't been to the parade in many years, but the weather was relatively mild (38F) and I was feeling nostalgic. It was all so lovely and really put me in the Christmas mood. 
The tree made it's way out of the attic room for the first time in 4 years and is set up waiting for the lights to be put on.  I might not put up the ornaments this year though.  Our new addition, Deuce, is a bit too wild and curious and most of my ornaments are glass.
Wishing everyone peace and joy whatever holiday you celebrate at this time of year!

  1. Well THAT parade would certainly put even the Scrooge into the Christmas spirit. I loved seeing the pictures of all the horses.

    Merry Christmas!
