Hometown Christmas, part 3

Winter Wonderland Fantasy

Adults and children alike pretend to hear the sound of crunching snow beneath their feet or feel the icy crystals against a rosy cheek.  Many Dream of a White Christmas, scooting children along glittering tree-lined paths or stopping for the free Santa photos.
