With candy canes and silver lanes that glow…
Around here that ‘silver lane’ most definitely is Candy Cane Lane! The perfect place — in my humble opinion — to take walk in a Winter Wonderland!
A local tradition for over 60 years, Candy Cane Lane is a yearly must-do for so many people in the area. It is definitely on my yearly Christmas bucket list. Actually, I generally go through several times before Christmas. I like to take the long way home from work and cut through Duboistown for a quick trip through before heading home for the evening. But there’s nothing quite like heading out after dinner and listening to Christmas music while making the slow climb up the hill — unless you drive a stick shift!
It’s always entertaining to hear people talk about their favorite displays too! The workshop at the top of the hill? The ice skaters at the bottom? No matter what, it’s always an amazing way to spend a little time to help raise your Christmas spirit!
If you really want to make an adventure of it, grab some hot chocolate and your walking shoes and walk up and down Summer Street. Driving is nice, but it’s really a perfect Christmas experience to walk Candy Cane Lane and see the lights and displays up close. And if you don’t believe me that walking Candy Cane Lane can be Christmas magic, just read Andrea McElroy’s story on page 24. She will for sure change your mind!
If you have a last minute wish list to get to Santa, he will be visiting Candy Cane Lane this weekend! He’ll be out and about on Saturday, Sunday and on Christmas Eve from 6:15 p.m. until around 9:00 p.m. Be sure to catch him before he heads back to the North Pole!
Sleigh bells may be jingling, but I am ever the Christmas procrastinator, I’m hoping that by the time you read this, I will be ready for Christmas. Really, really hoping. Some day I’m going to get myself together and have everything done, wrapped and ready to go early — but today is not that day. Tomorrow ain’t lookin’ good either.
To be honest I totally forgot about wrapping anything until I just wrote it.
My Christmas to-do list is still fairly lengthy, but it happens every year and every year I manage to pull it together — I’m sure I’ll be fine. Totally fine.
On a totally unrelated note, if you know anyone who specializes in finishing Christmas shopping, wrapping, cleaning, and grocery shopping for people, maaaaaybe send me their number? Asking for a friend!
But seriously, I hope you are all enjoying this last week before Christmas. Enjoy the hustle and bustle and all things merry and bright! It’s a busy time of year, but always worth it!
