Bardstown Road Aglow 2012

Today is not only December 1, it's also the first Saturday in the month.   That means that later on tonight in Da Ville will be the 27th annual edition of another event that signals the arrival of the Christmas season in Louisville in Bardstown Road Aglow.

Since this blog started while I was living there, writing a post about it is one of my holiday traditions. It's also the day besides Thanksgiving and Christmas I miss my friends, chosen family and church family in Louisville the most and glad you'll have a nice night and perfect weather for it.

At dusk many of the business and churches along a several mile section of Bardstown Road in the Highlands neighborhood open their doors until 10 PM and greet revelers with sales and holiday music .

There are street vendors up and down that stretch of road, carolers and even bagpipers playing or singing Christmas carols.

My old church used to have yours truly spinning Christmas music with soul in the entry narthex of the over a century old church exhorting the people walking by to "slillllde into Edenside" as other members served hot coffee, wassail, lemonade, apple cider, baked goods and had our choir or other local groups perform in the sanctuary.

So know that when it hits sunset here, I'll definitely be thinking about y'all enjoying the latest edition of Bardstown Rpoad Aglow while i'm dealing with some unseasonably warm weather here in H-town.
