Tonight the Exeter Garden Club had its annual Christmas shindig (probably not the right word, but oh well). It was lovely. About six of us made tons of appetizers and desserts. Yum! It was lovely to see our Christmas tree decorated. We put it up at the Exeter Veteran's Memorial Building for the season. It was the first real Christmas event I've been to this year, but it was a nice way to start off the week of holiday events.
Thursday is Downtown Exeter's Holiday Open House where businesses stay open late and pass out appetizers to thousands of people. There's carolers, hot chocolate, carraige rides and of course Santa Claus. It's like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life. Friday is the Christmas parade downtown. And then there is Saturday. I have to cover the Guild Breakfast in Lindsay which is fabulous cause of all the eleboratly decorated tables, then on to some Holiday bazaars and craft fairs. I'll post pictures after I return home.
