Want to feel like you are walking through Charles Dickens' neighborhood? Want to tell old Scrooge to lighten up? Or feeling like Scrooge and needing to catch the Christmas spirit?
This weekend Franklin, TN hosts Dickens of a Christmas, complete with live music, vendors, and characters in period dress. Details are here.
Wanting to go back in time to your own Christmases past? Nothing brings back memories like music. If you haven't already, make a Christmas music playlist to listen to with your iPod or burn on a CD. Mine features an eclectic mix of Andy Williams, Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Harry Connick, Jr., and Frank Sinatra. We may not get the white Christmas we're dreaming of, but we can make the music part of our tradition.
