Winter Wonderland Walk slated for Thursday night at Linton-Stockton Elementary School

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

This time of year brings out the best in old and young alike, and Linton-Stockton Elementary School wants to share it with everyone. The school's fourth annual "Winter Wonderland Walk" is slated for Thursday, Dec. 6 from 5--7:30 p.m. on the elementary school grounds.

Memories are what bind us together through time and distance, and taking time to make those memories is more important than you know. Memories are free and so is the "Winter Wonderland Walk."

It does not matter what age you are, petting a live reindeer is still exciting. The taste of a homemade cookie will never go out of style, and nor will a yummy cup of hot chocolate on a brisk winter's eve. Mittens, cold little noses, and sweet smiles on the faces of those we love are things we long treasure, and things that evaporate before we turn around twice.

The wonder of Santa Claus will forever be embedded in all of our hearts, because it brings out that certain sweetness of twinkling lights and the dreams of childhood. Santa will make his appearance at the "Winter Wonderland" and if you are nimble and quick, you might just capture that glimmer of sweetness on the face of a child with your cell phone camera. If you have a mind to jump into the holidays you are welcome to kick up your heels in one of the two Bounce Houses that will be in the gym. However if your exuberance is nestled more in nostalgia, you can warm yourself by the hearth in the school's authentic restored log cabin while listening to live acoustic guitar.

If caroling is an art form you most long for and seldom hear, then settle in as you enjoy our live choir. For those of you who revel more in switches, and coal, you can get your "Bah-Hum-Bug" on when you run into our costumed Grinch who will be looking for you.

There will also be a live nativity scene complete with some live animals for the kids to enjoy.

We've been the last two years. It's beautiful, fun, & FREE. What a perfect time to unplug & spend time with your kiddos.

The first paragraph of this article is incorrect. This is the first "Winter Wonderland Walk". The past three were the "Christmas Walk", but we cannot use the words Christmas and Easter in our school any longer. Merry Christmas to all.
