Christmas Parade rolls through Jonesborough

True to the “Christmas around the world” theme, many floats in the Jonesborough Christmas Parade included globes, like the giant ornament hanging from the back of a green Volkswagen Van. Essyx Employee Dwayne Solomon said the globe ornament made of Styrofoam and the branch of spruce it hung beside reminded him of a Charlie Brown Christmas. There were also lots of signs bearing messages that weren’t in English, but all meant Merry Christmas. And the chilly conditions didn’t stop a herd of horses from trotting downtown nor did it hault a bunch of bundled up children from shouting “Happy New Year” to the crowd. It was a rosy-cheeked and red-nosed Christmas occasion, in true Jonesborough style.
