In the Prince William County area- the passing of Thanksgiving simply means "It's time to decorate for Christmas". As I drove to and from my destinations over the weekend, I saw Christmas lights up and families outside hanging decorations. What a wonderful time of year it is! People are cheery, giving, and kind as they prepare for the influx of family, gifts, and food.
If you live in the Northern VA area- there are plenty of activities to participate in throughout the coming Month.
Dumfries will hold its annual Christmas Tree Lighting from 5-6 p.m. Dec. 7 at town hall, 17755 Main St. Dumfries.
Participants will get to sing carols with the Dumfries Elementary School Chorus. Children will be read a holiday story by Mayor Jerry Foreman and all will be able to decorate the town tree.
Ornaments are available at the Dumfries Town Hall for those interested in decorating them at home and bring them to the lighting.
