Nothing goes better together than Christmas and…ugly sweaters.
For the second year in a row, Yankee Candle Village hosted a special event to encourage holiday shoppers to dress in their most tacky sweaters.
Yankee Candle is known for their holiday decor and wide selection of all things Christmas. But before you even enter the store, there is a beautiful light display.
2 The Top provided some holiday spirit with their Christmas song covers and a few more contemporary covers.
Dancers from Pioneer Valley Ballet performed in the candle fragrance section of the store.
There was also a wine tasting and food tasting area.
And, of course, there was a holiday sweaters. Some of the sweaters lit up.
There were sweater families.
And festive friends in sweaters.
The coordinator of the event was on the look for winning sweaters.
And, yes, I did win a prize for one of the best “tacky sweaters.” It’s also my clubbing shirt.
About New England Nomad
Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog.
I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog.
Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts.
I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much.
I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well.
The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things.
Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England!
