If you know me, you will know that Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love how happy everyone is in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and the fact that for just a few weeks it is acceptable to wear horrible Christmas sweaters (which I love so so so so much). For the past four years I have gone to watch the Christmas parade that takes place in downtown Dallas, and this year was no exception. Although it may not be on as large of a scale as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC, I still love going to it. Once I go to the parade, I know that I can officially start the countdown to Christmas. This year the weather could not have been more perfect- It was cold enough to need to wear a coat, but not so cold that my fingers felt like they were going to fall off, which was a relief. I remember one year I brought with four different blankets, a coat, a sweater, and gloves, yet I was still freezing. Overall, the parade was just as wonderful as it usually is. Here are some pictures I took, I hope you like them! I think I have finally figured out the settings on my camera that work the best (it only took me three years, haha)!
