Moment with the Mayor

Merry Christmas! from the Mayor

As we enter December, the holidays are already in full swing, and the hustle and bustle of Boerne is full of energy. The weather for Dickens on Main, while a little soupy on Friday, did not disappoint on Saturday. Almost 33,000 people attended the 2-day Christmas kick-off. It was an honor to light the brand new 30’ Christmas tree and it was a real treat to meander main street on both days, meeting and talking with so many wonderful people.

I don’t know about you, but for me the scene in Boerne during the holidays always feels like one of those Hallmark Christmas movies that invade the TV starting in October. You know the ones I’m talking about, right? They seem to regularly start in a beautiful small town with a very quaint main street. There are Christmas lights up and down the street, because these small towns are proud of their traditions and the decorations do light up our life.

Inevitably, there are scenes on Main Street where store owners, locals, and visitors all interact with genuine smiles and happiness. As you walk past people on the sidewalk, they actually look at you and greet you with a polite, “Howdy.” Of course, as the plot continues, there will be some young couple that have a chance meeting and then all the sappy story line continues to a very predictable ending.
