Do you feel like the Christmas season gets earlier and earlier each year?
I took this photo July 2nd at Hobby Lobby in Lake Charles! In JULY Hobby Lobby employees were already unpacking Christmas items and LSU Christmas merchandise was being displayed before LSU ever dreamed they would be ranked #1 or had played their first game!
This week the first Christmas lights went up in my neighborhood and if you are searching for “white lights” all the stores are already SOLD OUT! We are still eating left over Halloween candy at my house and the Thanksgiving turkey has not even been bought yet!
Next week November 16-19 Lake Charles residents will be attending the Junior League Mistletoe & Moss Event and will begin to start Christmas shopping. There are many more holiday events yet to come for residents of Lake Charles to enjoy. To keep residents informed of events I have created a Holiday Happenings Page.
Lake Charles will officially begin holiday festivities on Saturday, December 3rd for what is known as “Light up the Lake” when all the lights are turned on in front of the Civic Center and Boardwalk. You can hang out around the seawall and enjoy the “Lighted Boat Parade” followed by a grand display of Fireworks on the Lake!
Before its time to wish you a Merry Christmas and we begin deck the house, I would like to finish carving my turkey and take time to share a Thanksgiving Blessing with you!
“When we count
our many blessings;
It isn’t hard to see
that life’s most valued
treasures are the
treasures that are free.
For it isn’t what
we own or buy
It’s the special
gifts that have
friends and health.”
