riding in a wagon

The day after Thanksgiving, the town square gets all lit up for Christmas. The whole place looks like fairyland and everyone is in a festive mood. People wait in line for a free ride around the square in a big red wagon decorated with colored lights, drawn by a pair of Clydesdale horses. A little boy counts the reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh going round and round in the bandstand. Young children with their parents line up outside a little red hut for their turn to sit on Santa's lap and whisper what they want for Christmas. The days grow shorter, the nights longer and the weather colder, but holiday cheer warms the heart.
