Here at the Bookery we collect Christmas books all year long to bring out in December.
In front of our store we have a table, boxes and shelves laden with wonderful holidays books just waiting to spread their cheer.
On Sunday December 5th we were right smack-dab in the middle of the action for Placerville's annual holiday parade.
Nancy, Celia, and Jackie enjoy the view:
We took delight in all the characters of this year's parade, including the cheerful animals:
So many wonderful and joyous participants:
The grand combination of El Dorado, Ponderosa, and Union Mine's marching bands playing Christmas tunes gave us goosebumps:
Our own Bookery lady, Sharon, made sure to greet Smokey the Bear!
We were excited to see the El Dorado Book Mobile,
especially because we donated many of the books that they handed out for free to the children in the crowd!
Even after the rain started, these merry little dancers warmed our hearts:
Merry Christmas from Placerville's Santa and his helpers:
Don't forget to take a stroll around downtown Placerville and enjoy all the lights this year:
As well as the special Christmas trees that light up our highway corridor.
The Bookery decorates one of those trees!
Please enjoy our festive Main Street during the holidays this year.
And don't forget to stop and pick up some books for your loved ones at Chistmastime!
