We can think of no better addition to a celebration of the Christmas season than to gather with friends and neighbors in a stroll around town.
The Christmas Walk has been a tradition in Warren since most Warrenites were children, and many of us have fond memories of those "good old days" when Levinson's, Betty Lee's, Carnahan's were joined by nearly a dozen other retailers and restaurants now gone, all open and accomodating on those frigid nights when chestnuts, cider and cookies were on the street menu and storefront windows were alive with entertainment.
Yes, those names are gone, but the spirit lives on in places that still call downtown Warren home, as well as the ones which have recently joined the club. And, we're sure there will still be chestnuts, hot chocolate and fellowship to share.
Warren will celebrate Christmas together this evening, beginning with the parade at 6 p.m.
But, don't allow that holiday feeling to wane. Youngsville's Hometown Christmas will offer the experience tomorrow evening. Youngsville's parade steps off at 4 p.m., followed by good music, good stuff to eat and a variety of activities.
This coordination was done in order not to tax the schedule of one jolly old elf, who is particularly busy this time of year and wanted to make sure he could attend both events.
