A Dickens Christmas.

Monday, December 14, 2009

Anytime the roads are blocked off in downtown Franklin for a festival, it's probably worth going.

This time, the festival was "A Dickens Christmas," and downtown was bustling with characters from "A Christmas Carol," kettle corn, and dancing.

There were bonnets.

And hoop skirts.

And dancing.

There was the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come*.

And the Ghost of Christmas Present.

And, of course, there was the Ghost of Jacob Marley*.

There was Tiny Tim.

And there was a Mom and Son enjoying each others' company. :)

And finally, there was my kindergarten teacher (who looks the same as she did almost 20 years ago!)

And since you're probably wondering, there was newly brown hair (that looks so red in these photos, but it's really not).

Finally, my favorite, there were doggies that joined in the fun!

*Thanks to Brian Porick for the corrections. It's obvious I need to see "A Christmas Carol" again! :)

    Fun pictures! You are correct in being hesitant about your labeling of the Ghost of Christmas Past; it's actually the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come (a.k.a. the Ghost of Christmas Future) that is faceless and dresses in black robes.

    Sorry to keep nitpicking, but the ghostly guy in chains is actually the ghost of Jacob Marley (Scrooge's former business partner, whose selfishness in life bound the chains he must wear in death.)
