It is time to decorate
Placeholder Image


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did with all my family. Well it is official, time to decorate for Christmas. My tree is up just not decorated yet. I have seen a lot of families with their trees up and decorated. I love to see the Christmas lights and decorations. And if you love them too there are several places to visit in Nashville. Of course Opryland Hotel always a beautiful sight inside and out. Dancing Lights of Christmas at Jellystone Park, 2572 Music Valley Drive, Synchronized lights with 98wsix. Fill up a carload. Then there is Holiday Light at Cheekwood, 1200 Forrest Park where there are 750,000 lights were you can walk from the grounds to the beautiful mansion and see live reindeer also. Lights on Old Charlotte, 2613 Old Charlotte Pike where you will find a 25 ft. tree and much more. Last but not least Lipton Lights which is choreographed to music. You can find all these sights and a map on the internet.


Now happening in DeKalb County: December 3 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Smithville Review will have their 7th annual Christmas Bazaar at the DeKalb Community Complex in the auditorium. Come and see all the vendor for Christmas gifts. Also at First Baptist Enrichment Center they are having a indoor sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Don’t forget the Christmas Parade will be coming through Smithville around 1 p.m. Also there is a Christmas Bazaar at the Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church on December 1 and 2 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. These shopping events will be a good time to start your Christmas shopping or finish what you have on your Christmas list.
