Celebrated 13 days after Dec. 25th...for over 100 years our Serbian-American population has marked this day with a volley of rifle shots to announce that Christ is born in front of the National Hotel, St. Sava's Church on North Main St., and St. Sava's Mission on Broadway. Know that you are safe and all is well as the rifles are not loaded with live rounds.  It's your neighbor celebrating and keeping alive the rich traditions of the old country, and wishing you every happiness this Holiday Season, with great prosperity and good health in the New Year

Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving Day, 6 - 9 pm. Santa will light the town Christmas Tree, 6 pm Friday and Saturday at the Firehouse, then join Santa for photos at the National Hotel. Mrs. Santa Claus reads to little ones at Hein & Co. Bookstore on Friday. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the season while strolling Main Street -- free horse-drawn carriage rides, live music, activities for kids and treats for all at the downtown merchants.

 

Remember when Christmas shopping was fun? Jackson brings back the fun and joy of holiday shopping!
