Welcoming the Holiday at Every Entry in the Schenectady Stockade

Sunday, December 19, 2021
I don't think there's a time of the year when there's more love and hospitality shared than at Christmas and no more welcoming entryways anywhere at Christmas than in the Schenectady Stockade.
It's become tradition for John and I to visit the Festival of Trees every December and while we're in the neighborhood, we've also formed a tradition of taking in the beautiful architecture and decor of so many of the homes throughout the Historical Stockade. The inviting entries don't just exist at the holidays. They are just as warm and welcoming in every season. It wasn't until the last 6 years that I even discovered the beauty of the Stockade, so if you're like me and haven't had the opportunity to meander the narrow streets and explore the elaborate architecture.....here's a little tour of just a small group of colorful homes and welcoming neighborhood.  Disclaimer:  I wasn't meandering on foot.  As always, my shots were all taken from our slow moving vehicle.

Gorgeous, right?!?!? So much detail, it's like a row of beautifully executed gingerbread houses. The Festival of Trees is open until December 23rd. If you get a chance to go, take some time to drive through the Stockade. If you don't make it, scroll down at the end of this post to see my post and photos of this wonderful annual tradition. Thanks for visiting Life As I See It! I know it's been busy around here this month, but I have one more post coming your way then I'll be taking a little down time to enjoy the holiday. Life has so much to offer if we just stop our busy schedules for a moment and make time for the little things. I hope the holidays will afford you time to enjoy the things that truly matter in your world.
