It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
All around the town.
Everywhere you go.
It certainly seems so.
From a sleigh at Sam’s Antiques to goodies at The Coffee Mug.
From Market Square to Mason Garden Market.
WhipperWheel to The Cotton Patch.
The Mason Jar to Mason County News.
Sandstone Cellars Winery.
Benjie’s Books & Gifts.
At dark, the square lights up.
The tree of lights blazes at Heritage Park.
Star light, star bright.
Christmas Christmas everywhere.
You can get gifts just about anywhere.
From The Mason Gallery to the Odeon Theater.
From Lilacs N’ Calico to The Thing Is.
A gift basket from The Cat’s Meow.
Or tools from R. Grosse & Sons.
Décor galore from The Petal Patch.
Dickie Workwear from Mason Building Supply.
Jewelry and more from Willows.
Collectibles from Country Collectibles.
Hinckley’s has all kinds of possibilities.
So does Mason Feed.
Give a gift from The Green House.
Natural and pure.
Don’t forget Donop’s for a big selection.
And Ranchland Western Wear.
Find something for everyone at Underwood Antique Mall.
Trade with Lone Star Trading Post.
Get your Christmas wreath from Striegler’s Flowers.
And for the hunter on the list, there’s A Vision Taxidermy.
And Texas Guns.
Or maybe a drum:
Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?
Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
