Over the years, many Christmas traditions have taken root in our community that are for the most part unique to Harford County.
Today and Friday, we take a look at 12 Harford Christmas Traditions in photos and reminisce about a few others that have sadly left us.
Today's take includes:
Aberdeen's Christmas Street Parade
The Bel Air Lions Club Christmas tree sale
The Festival of Trees at the Bel Air Reckord Armory
The Bel Air Christmas Parade
The Aegis Empty Stocking fundraiser
The Havre de Grace Candlelight Tour
For traditions 7-12, see Friday's paper.
