lp_sinter_2006_009_smallest.jpgI’ve attended the Lynden Lighted Christmas Parade several times, and it was worth standing in the cold each time. In fact, standing in the cold is part of what makes a Christmas parade special. Think, A Christmas Story, haloes of steam around everyone’s head in the crisp frosty air, Ralphie chomping at the bit because he wants to petition Santa for a Red Ryder B.B. Gun. Take a big thermos of something hot along, and dress warm, and you’ll be just fine. And pray that it doesn’t rain.

Each time, afterwards, I went out for a late bite to eat – which always seems to top something like that off, for me.

Be sure to visit the Lynden website – they have a complete list of Christmas activities occuring throughout the day, including the arrival of Sinterklaas.

  • What : A host of holiday activities, culminating in the lighted Christmas parade.
  • When: Saturday, December 6, 2008. Parade begins at Fairway Center, Lynden, 6:00 PM

Judging on Nov. 20, 2008

I’ve never known the good townsfolk of Lynden, WA, to be lax on Christmas Spirit, so I’m thinking that this contest, sponsored by the Lynden Chamber of Commerce, may yield some fine displays, indeed. Judging is on Thursday, Nov. 20th, so the following weekend might be an excellent time for a stroll through downtown Lynden to peruse the window decorations.
