Dickens on Main is something fun they do every year on the weekend after Thanksgiving in nearby Boerne, Texas. It sounded like fun, so we finally attended this year. We didn't do even a third of what there was offered there, but we felt adventurous for even making the trek and we had a good time.
The next reason to go is the atmosphere--Dickens-era costumes, music and dramatizations! We, of course, got no pictures with any of that; we just stared in awe and then moved on. We did pay for a picture with Santa Claus, who--it turns out--has very few teeth and it sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he talks. The kids weren't sure what he was trying to say when he asked them what they wanted for Christmas. I apparently understand "too much eggnog" accent, so I interpreted for them.
