Christmas is a week away, and we can hardly believe it! There are so many traditions with Christmas that we look forward to in Frederick County. All the stores decorated shop windows, lights strung all around town, and the boats glowing on Carroll Creek. It is an amazing place this time of year! The joyful feeling that overcomes this time of year comes from the community. The community is covered in lights, and the community is coming together to help those in need.
We want to highlight some of Charis’s favorite light displays around Frederick County. So, buckle up, grab your hot cocoa, turn up the Christmas tunes, and hit the road to check out these decked-out homes for the holidays!
