Front Royal’s recent Christmas parade gave us another reason to love this town. We went to the Christmas parade a couple weeks ago. (Yes, I said Christmas parade. That’s what it’s called here—not “Holiday” parade or “Parade That Must Not Be Named,” but “Christmas Parade.”)

At the end of a traditional Christmas parade, typically Santa comes riding in a horse and carriage to launch the Christmas season. But the town’s horse and carriage had come through earlier—carrying the mayor’s wife or someone. But as the photo here shows, when the end of the parade came Santa Claus was there. Except in Front Royal Santa rides in a monster truck.

I love this town!
