I’m dreaming of a Court Street Christmas

Yesterday, for some odd reason, I was completely in the Christmas spirit. I had an insane craving for cookies that was easily satisfied by my box of Girl Scout thin mints. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” blasted through my headphones. Personally, my mood was more chipper than usual however quickly subsided into a nostalgic hangover.

It may be March, but the true Christmas spirit lives on Court Street in Athens and I couldn’t resist soaking in the memories. Just in case you needed a little reminder:
