The Five Best South Carolina Christmas Towns to Celebrate the Holidays.
It is officially Christmas time in the South, with a full slate of parades on deck for this weekend. A chill is in the air, trees are in homes, lights hang from porches, and Santa will soon make his nightly run in less than a month. The holidays are a wonderful time of year for most. I remember waiting for the Sears and Roebuck Catalog and the numerous trips to Lionel Toy Company in Charlotte to see all the toys firsthand on the shelves. Even the annual trip to McAdenville while waiting in line brought Christmas magic, with all the lights flickering on homes and dangling from trees were some of my fondest moments. Living in a small town close to the North Carolina border afforded us opportunities to venture out. My city held a parade every year, which brought out the entire county in attendance with marching bands, fire trucks, floats, and Santa himself. We even had decorations plastered on local businesses and on light poles.
