3. Nothing beats the Holiday Season in a small town.
Everyone has different traditions for celebrating the holiday season, and in a lot of small towns, one of those is going to the annual Christmas parade.
Filled with festive decorations and folks yelling “Merry Christmas!” everywhere you turn, what’s not to love about a Christmas parade? Of course, while every parade, big or small, in the South is special, there are some familiar sights you might expect to see at one.
For instance, you can pretty much count on there being tractors pulling trailers full of candy-throwing kiddos, and there’s a good chance snow is going to fall from the sky – or by that, we mean soap is going to fall from a snow machine – at least once (regardless of whether everyone in attendance is wearing T-shirts because it’s actually 70 degrees outside).
4. TSA Testing Self-Service Security Option
Travelers with TSA Pre Check eligibility will soon be able to select a self-service screening option to speed up the security process. A prototype system will be trialed next month in Las Vegas. “Like self-ordering kiosks at fast food and sit-down restaurants, self-service.”
5. Christmas in Switzerland
Geneva, Switzerland– It was December and snow was falling in the Alps. Throughout Switzerland Christmas Markets were preparing to celebrate the season. The air was full of aromatic spices wafting from the large pots of steaming red, mulled gluehwein, which the Swiss drink to chase the evening cold. The scent of fresh cut evergreens and wood smoke mixed with roasting chestnuts, frying sausages, cheese raclette and brewing coffee wandered through the narrow streets.
