Take a peek inside our latest issue.

Look who’s delivering a present under a Christmas tree at the Festival of Trees in Downtown Paris…SANTA CLAUS! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to our readers from the staff of PARIS! Magazine.


'Tis the Season!

One of the first stories to land on my desk for this issue was Bill Neese’s article for Back In The Day, entitled “Christmas Magic On The Courthouse Square.” I loved reading his account of slip-sliding in his old car into downtown Paris on a snowy Christmas Eve. He was just a kid, but he was so transfixed by the glistening scene that he had to pause and soak it all in. That picture has stayed in his head all of these years later, and I appreciate him sharing it so beautifully.

John Watkins’ article about “thankfulness” was the next thing to hit my desk and it snapped me out of my nostalgic mood and straight to the floor. I don’t know a single reader who isn’t thankful for our Garden Guru. If we all saw the world the way John does, it would be a much jollier place.

And speaking of jolly, I never tire of the fabulous Holly Jolly Electric Christmas Parade and other holiday events in historic downtown Paris. This article, penned by Mama Claus herself, reminds us to get those floats ready for the parade and come enjoy all of the events listed on the inside back cover.

This issue also has plenty of history, including an interview with veteran Georg Todd, a great piece from the keeper of all fabulous stories – Shannon McFarlin, and a fascinating Civil War tale. It also includes information on a new festival called Wings of Winter (I love that name) that will celebrate our migratory-feathered friends and bring in some winter tourists, as well.

Finally, this issue is proud to tout a couple of businesses that have hit impressive milestones and everyone’s favorite new rave, Sweet Jordan’s.

Here’s to a Happy Holiday Season with a little extra time to yourself to peruse this issue of PARIS!
