With the mild fall weather and no seasonal slow-down in the real estate market, the holidays kind of snuck up on us, and it appears we're not the only ones feeling this way. We were hard at work coordinating the 2016 Holiday House Tour with a Christmas in the Village theme along with some fun and interesting new elements when some key components fell through. At that point, we agreed with the Chamber's difficult decision to cancel. While we'll miss this festive event and the opportunity to welcome so many from the community at this special time of year, but just couldn't present something that wasn't our best. So we're taking a break for 2016 and are committed to returning next year, better than ever!
To help you get into the festive holiday mood, here's a look back at last year's tour — enjoy!
And we hope to see you out and about at all the other festive and seasonal activities in and around Bedford — this is such a wonderful time when our community comes together to celebrate and connect. We've been busy decorating our office and our homes — gathering greens, celebrating with colleagues, shopping for gifts and special
recipes. What makes this season special to you? Do you have a favorite family tradition or recipe? Please share on our Facebook page at — we'd love to hear from you!
And in case you need some ideas, here are some of our favorite upcoming community events!
