Best and Brightest: Seneca Falls in December
Local life is such an important part of where you are, even if you only plan on a temporary stay for school. My early days in Seneca Falls left me wanting more, but after a year and a half of living here, I’ve finally discovered the gems that make some people love this area.
Christmas is a great time here. Seneca Falls embraces its likely influences on It’s a Wonderful Life, adjacent town Waterloo converts their downtown Memorial Day Park into a giant creche, and nearby Geneva emanates a classic holiday spirit from its many historic brick edifices.
Unfortunately, those quick weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are overwhelming. We busy ourselves by wrapping up student organization and work responsibilities for the semester, then a week of lab/practical finals in which class continues, then a week dedicated entirely to our seven lecture finals.
This year, I found my respite from all of that studying by deciding to get out and run, drive, or walk around town- and take pictures. So on this Christmas day, enjoy a look at some of the town’s best light displays, some classic scenes, and a particularly memorable 5K race.
(If you have a favorite display I missed… I was likely too cold to get out of my car. I am finally regaining the use of my toes, don’t worry.)
Presently I will return to blogging about chiropractic education and such. For the moment, have a merry Christmas and happy holidays!
