Meanwhile, In Southport, NC...

...a new tradition begins: the Dickens Christmas Festival.

Southport's first-ever Charles Dickens Festival, set for Friday and Saturday will transform Southport's historic district into Victorian London, complete with strolling carolers, storytellers and numerous other performers.

The two-day festival consists of 50 events, including Christmas tree and gingerbread house contests in addition to holiday plays, musicals, Dickens vignettes and impersonators. Each day's activities are scheduled from 1-9 p.m.


Hopefully it will become as successful as Galveston, Texas's Dickens-On-The-Strand festival. Southport is one of my favorite towns in coastal NC.

That looks like it would be fun. Enjoy!

@Rev. Paul: Oh, I'm not there myself, just mentioning it for anyone who is in the NC area and wasn't aware of it. Definitely would love to see it, though.
