There hasn’t been any sign of snow for that white Christmas but that has not dampened the holiday spirits of residents across Naperville and the Fox Valley.
From tree lightings in downtowns to caroling events to neighborhood light displays that wow everyone from 1 to 100, communities are humming with the holiday spirit.
With Christmas just 9 days away, the excitement will continue to build as shoppers rush out to make sure their gift list is not only checked twice, but checked off.
And, of course, there is the anticipation for the arrival of Santa Claus.
