Feeling a bit corny…

Historic Old St. Charles, Missouri is always a favorite spot for me to pop into whenever I go back to visit family.  To be honest, I’ve always visited Main Street here to poke around in the shops ever since I was fresh out of college for the first time.

It’s only been in the past 5 years or so that I’ve saved my time to visit the historic area to around Christmas because of their Christmas traditions program which the grands like.  This year, for the first time, we were there to see their decorations for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos.

Decorating for each holiday is similar yet very different.  Christmas pine trees or corn stalks.  Mums or poinsettias.  Various Santa’s or scarecrows and other spooky outfits.  Also with both holidays there are presents… it’s just that for one you go door to door and the other has them delivered to you from the chimney or Amazon 😉

While I’m not into decorating my home for Halloween (but I will dress up for it!) I do like having mums, pumpkins and gourds on the front porch.  Here are couple more photos of how the stores on Main Street decorate for the season.

Do you have an old and or historic part of your town that goes all out decorating for the holidays?

    I love St Charles. Beautiful town.

  2. This is really pretty, Teri. Fall colors are so lovely. We have kind of a historic area on the main road here but only some people decorate.

    I don’t decorate for Halloween, but I do enjoy decorating for autumn. For one thing, the season’s longer. There’s one home nearby that hangs plastic jack-o-lanterns from their oak trees — at least a couple of hundred of them. They’ve been doing it since at least 1973, when I first saw them.
