Downtown traditions embody what Christmas means to us
Saturday, December 1, 2012
One of Jefferson City’s official starts to the holiday season enjoyed a large crowd, thanks in part to unseasonably warm weather Friday evening.
C.C. McClure, manager at Downtown Book and Toy, said this year’s Living Windows seemed especially well-attended. She noticed lots more people entered the shop earlier in the evening. She thought the unseasonably mild weather probably contributed to large crowds.
“Usually this is a night for looking, but people are actually buying,” she said.
As usual, the windows of local downtown businesses were filled with dancers, singers and Christmas displays, and fun could be had for a mere song.
