McAdenville, NC (ChristmasTown, USA)…

McAdenville — aka ChristmasTown, USA is between Dallas & Charlotte and holds a special place in my heart.

ChristmasTown, USA lights up every year at … well Christmastime.  Locals near and far come to enjoy the lights, music, and holiday cheer.  The tradition has been going for years!

My parents took me to McAdenville one year to see the lights.  By their account, I was about 2 years old.  I had a full-on meltdown.  Apparently I thought McAdenville was something extraordinary — like Disney World.  I started crying and screaming, “This ain’t Cadenville.  This is house-to-house!”

Yep — still a running joke in my family today.

I spent some time in McAdenville a few weeks ago speaking to their Woman’s Club about how to creatively organize shoes, purses, and jewelry.

“McAdenville Woman’s Club – is a group of women gathering together to secure a united effort in the development of ourselves, our homes and our community. The club has been an active force in the town of McAdenville since 1954.”

During the meeting, the president spoke about volunteer opportunities such as a beautification project at the local elementary school.  Next up was a push to sell McAdenville t-shirts.  My ears perked up.  I love a good t-shirt — especially a long sleeve version.

The t-shirt sale is their largest fundraiser and funds are used for various beautification projects and community needs, as well as the Maxine Porch scholarship that is awarded to deserving students in the area who are attending college.  If you are interested…

  1. Sad to say, I only live 5 minutes from there and have not been to see the lights in years!!! This year, we are planning to walk through it instead of drive. Pretty excited.
