It starts with the giving of thanks for blessings too numerous to count. Then a downtown Advent Walk users in the season with the proper preparation of hearts and minds as Christians await and prepare for the commemoration of the blessed event on Christmas Eve. There's a lighted parade down Paducah'd historic corridor to celebrate the secular side of the Christmas season with the arrival of that jolly old elf himself, Santa Claus. Then there's all that gift giving that necessitates dedicated, downtown shopping so you can wrap up that particular yuletide aspect and tie it with a bow. And as we set sail into another year of LIFE in Paducah, there's a star-studded evening at the Carson Center to ring in the new year at the annual Charity League Snowball.
These and many other faithful or fun-filled events and occasions are part and parcel of how we keep the holidays happy as we seek the solace of the holy season as well as the joyfulness of just being together.
With the help of fashion stylist Carson Love, we set out to highlight just a few of the magical moments to come ... in the place we call home for the holidays.
