My small town (Pelham, Georgia) held its annual Christmas parade this morning and the whole family decided to go. I didn’t get to go last year, which would have marked the first time I’d been able to go since I was of an age to have been in the parade myself! It brought back a lot of memories of parade mornings with my high school band and even a couple of turns in a fancy car as a “queen.” 🙂 This morning’s parade had all the classic elements of a small town parade: vintage cars, beauty queens, bands, homemade floats, decorated pickup trucks, tractors, and Santa pulling up the rear on the firetruck! If only the temperature would get below 70 degrees, it would really begin to feel like Christmas!
