‘Tis the Season to Bring Joy
Christmas will be here before we know it, and it is a holiday that is all about bringing joy to others. There is nothing better than seeing the smile on someone’s face when they receive a gift, especially one that they weren’t expecting.
We gathered up some ways that you can bring joy in Liberty County this holiday season, so we could share them with y’all!
Santa decided to leave his mailbox with us here at the historic Bacon-Fraser house! Y’all can come by and let your little ones drop their letters to Santa in the mailbox and the delivery to the North Pole is completely free! As long as the letters are dropped off by December 13th, then each letter will receive a response straight from Old Saint Nick himself. The mailbox is hard to miss! It’s bright red with a candy cane down the side. Y’all can come by anytime! You can find the mailbox at 208 East Court Street in downtown Hinesville. Hurry and don’t miss out!
