12 Best of Frederick at the Holidays

In the spirit of the 12 days of Christmas, here is a list of the 12 best things about being in Frederick for the holidays.
12. Beautifully decorated historic homes and businesses
11. Snow dusting the church steeples
10. Rosy cheeks of passersby
9. Smoke billowing out of brick chimneys
8. The smell of Christmas cookies wafting from the bakery
7. The Kris Kringle Parade
6. The National Lampoon-esque failed lighting of the Baker Park tree (which did not dampen any holiday cheer)
5. Free holiday events all over town
4. Drinks with new friends before A Christmas Twist at the MET
3. The Nutracker at the Weinberg
2. The "Take Grandma Fudge for Christmas" sign on the corner
1. The hundreds of white-light covered trees lining Patrick and Market Streets provided by the generous donations of Frederick city-dwellers (after last year's Snowmageddon destroyed the old lights)

  1. Would fasching be the equivalent to the Kris Kringle parade?

    KG is in LA and all I hear around here is, "I miss Kathy" ...what am I chopped liver?!

    Happy Holidays
