While homeschool families often seek to establish traditions within their own families for the holidays, the city of Roanoke has a Christmas tradition of its own. Dickens of a Christmas, which began more than 26 years ago as a way to encourage holiday shopping downtown, has become a holiday festival that spans three weekends in December. The event begins Friday, December 3, 2010, and continues on Friday, December 10, and Friday, December 17 from around 6-10 p.m. each evening. This family affair features reenactors dressed in old English style, street carolers, musical and dance performances, children’s activities, hot cocoa and apple cider, and even a strolling St. Nick!
