Celebrating Christmas in a Small Texas Town

PEACE 
 
Here is a community that goes all-out in decorating their beautiful courthouse for Christmas.
 
The daily town traffic travels around The Town Square, with the 1897 Courthouse sitting in the middle of the square.
Each side, of the building, displays one of the four weekly themes of Advent.
 
 
HOPE
 
 
LOVE
 
 
JOY
 
 
A life-size display of the nativity....
 
 
Our Advent journey is almost complete. Today we light the Candle of Love, sometimes referred to as the Angel Candle.
