’Twas the Month Before Christmas…
…and all through the night, merchant elves were busy making sure our old-fashioned downtown was festive and bright.
There’s no place like Mistletoe Magic, the annual celebration orchestrated by the Rye Chamber of Commerce the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, to warm a young child’s heart. In addition to sharing their lists with Santa, youngsters took train, horse-drawn carriage, and pony rides. They watched a puppet show, slid down a bouncy castle, dined out on hot dogs and chili, warmed up with hot chocolate, met adoptable dogs, and bumped into some of their favorite Christmas characters.
