Kicking Off the Christmas Season

Kicking Off the Christmas Season

Friday night was the 18th annual Christmas Stroll in historic downtown Sheridan and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott was there and brings us this story.

It might have been Black Friday, but Friday night, the Christmas lights were turned on bright as the 18th annual Christmas Stroll in downtown Sheridan kicked off the Christmas shopping season.

Seems like everybody and their dog was downtown and I'm not kidding about the dogs. The Stroll is one of the great social events of the year as folks stroll down Main Street, running into old friends and meeting new ones. The Maucks have enjoyed the Stroll for eight years.

Christine Heff echoes those thoughts.

This year's theme was “Home for the Holidays.” Theresa Lee with her husband Rick, has made it a tradition to drive down from Billings to spend Thanksgiving and the Stroll with their family.

The holiday season comes alive as the holiday shopping kicks into high gear at the Stroll. Buttons are sold with hopes of finding the lucky Stroll Button number in the ninety-five participating stores.

Free hot chocolate, hotdogs, and chili plus rides on the trolley, a train, and wagons. What more could be fun other than a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. They both complemented the children of Sheridan.

Renny Burke was there shopping, but not just for Christmas. I'm wondering if Santa would think him naughty or nice.

This was Craig Kuenzel's first Stroll. From Minnesota, decked out with cowboy hat and vest, he was here deer hunting.

Jack Fiedor was in town enjoying the Stroll. He has this Christmas shopping thing all figured out.

But more than the socializing or the food or the fun and rides, the Stoll marks the beginning of the Christmas season. Two words say it all. Listen to six year-old Gabby Smith.
