Dickens of a Christmas 

When: Dec. 8-9 2012
The first time I went to Dickens of a Christmas, I stumbled into the Franklin celebration completely unaware of the happening holiday hoopla and was treated to one of the most surreal Yuletide experiences I’ve ever had. The event has had a place in my heart ever since all those anachronistic costumed characters greeted me with doffed stovepipe hats, and what seemed like an army of crutch-wielding Tiny Tim clones clambered through the streets of historic downtown Franklin, singing along with the glass harmonica and juggling hot roasted chestnuts. The free festival is celebrating its 27th birthday this weekend, and the arts and crafts, singing and dancing, carriage rides, English grub, and of course, period costumes make this celebration the kind of event that can scare the Scrooge out of even the most jaded holiday haters.
