Day 1 of the 5 Days of Christmas
On the first day of Christmas, Twila and Co. gave to me...

I LOVE living and working in Fredericksburg. It has given me a wonderful opportunity to work with other small businesses, and I see it's potential continues growing all the time. My favorite area is downtown, especially during Christmas time. All the stores decorate their windows and trees, and everywhere has that magical holiday glow. The historic streets are lined with lights and you can almost always find a horse and carriage riding around the streets.
The holiday season begins in November with a huge Open House. They have food, music, specials, and more. It's probably my favorite weekend to go downtown as I start to get in the Christmas spirit. The best part is seeing the Christmas themed windows for the first time.
This year, I was asked by the Fredericksburg Department of Economics and Tourism to design their Christmas card. I got to work with one of my favorite photographers, Minh of Instant de vie Photography, to photograph the downtown holiday windows. We had such a fun time walking around and looking at all the pretty windows and lights.
What holiday traditions do you have?
