HARRODSBURG — At Harrodsburg resident Coleen Thompson's house, Christmas decorating starts on Oct. 1. It isn't just because Christmas is her favorite holiday — which it is — it's because if she waits too long to get started, the decorating won't be finished by Dec. 1.
With 22 themed Christmas trees, nativities in every room and Possible Dreams Santa collectibles crowding the tables, walking into Thompson's home is like walking into a Christmas wonderland.
Thompson's home on Shenandoah Drive is among the homes that will be featured in this year's Harrodsburg's Historical Society's Holiday Homes Tour. The tour will take place from 1 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5. The cost is $15 per person and $11 for senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased at Morgan Row, the Tourist Commission at Diamond Point or at any of the homes on the tour, Jerry Sampson said.
The tour includes eight locations this year. Sampson said the historical society selects homes based on their historic nature, a special collection a person owns or the even because a home is beautifully decorated for the holidays.
