Main Street St. Charles Christmas is always a treat. The town and merchants go all out and it is a wonderful
family time. Shops are all decorated. Costumed characters are on parade, always staying in period.
It is the characters of Christmas's past that are the quest, at least for the young and young at heart.
Each Christmas character has a card to give to kids. I believe there are 33 this year, so daughter and I started on the collection of this years this past Sunday.
Followed by cookie baking till mom had to go to work.
Here with the Snow Queen.
This gal and her dogs have been doing carriage rides on Main St for years.
