It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas"..... was recorded in 1951 by Bing Crosby.
So, follow my story, and I will tell you why the lyrics ring true today.
Saturday begins with another country back road.
Just as the sign reads, it is always held the first Saturday after Thanksgiving.
It appears to be a simple country event....with no frills or fanfare. It is a third generation family farm.
I am greeted by one of the farm's family members, offering "free" homemade cookies, coffee and punch.

Thousands of beautiful poinsettias, just waiting to be taken home for Christmas.
I decided to buy two of the smaller red ones....
And one larger, creamy-white, plant for my dining room table.
To make this Saturday event complete, at the exit door was a sale table of fresh vegetables, grown on the farm.
Fresh picked and sold the same day.
Adding a basket, fruit, and a few pine cones, and it's beginning to look like Christmas.....
