Enjoy our Classic Christmas Tales of the Past below....

Crowns of white ice follow the skyline along mountain ridges, welcoming the season of holiday joy. In the central to northern Blue Ridge Mountains, snow will fall bringing ski enthusiast to the mountain towns and slopes, to the south the mountain winter climate is tempered with mild weather, with only an occasional dusting of snow.

The winter season is a surreal visual to behold. The lush forests have shed their leaves bringing about a sense of bareness and solitude. Ice forms along the high mountain ridges with occasional light snows dusting deep within the valleys. The rush of fair weather tourists have slipped away leaving the sights and sounds of the quiet mountain times to those who know how to take advantage of the peaceful winter season.

Each year the Blue Ridge Mountains become a spectacle of lights and holiday decorations, from the illuminated Christmas scenes of old town squares to the twinkling of colored lights on a distant mountainside.

With the coming of each winter holiday season the Blue Ridge Highlander enjoys sharing with its readers a virtual experience, taking you into the holiday celebration within the Blue Ridge Smoky Mountains. We hope you enjoy our holiday features as we wish you and your family a Peaceful and Loving Holiday Season and a Prosperous New Year.
