A Dickens of a Christmas!

Monday, December 15, 2014

Two dear friends of mine from college came up to Franklin for the weekend to visit. At the same time, there was a festival going on titled "Dickens of a Christmas". What did we do? We checked it out, of course! :)

"Dickens of a Christmas" is Franklin's huge winter festival that takes place downtown. There are plenty of vendors who sell all kinds of wares, from crafts to really, really good food. The fun part about "Dickens of a Christmas" is that it's what would happen if Main Street time-traveled to Victorian England. Not to mention the fact that characters from "A Christmas Carol" walk the streets, including the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, and Scrooge himself.

This year, the festival was a lot more crowded (see image above...Marley's Ghost was in that crowd somewhere), so re-enactors and street performers were more spread out amongst the festival attendants. Nevertheless, it's always so much fun to bring my friends back to my hometown to see it in such a unique way. :)
