FOR THE PAST WEEK we have been bringing you vintage Christmas photos from the Clinch Valley Times’ archives. Today we’re going to show you what Christmas 2020 looks like in St. Paul. It’s “The Ghost of Christmas Present” for our out-of-town family and friends. Enjoy!

It will take more than a Grinch to steal Christmas in St Paul

  1. CVT…..Absolutely beautiful and so glad you featured so many. The town crew, beautification committee, Jody Evans, Janice Hale, town hall staff, Main Street, local businesses and many more helped with the lights and decorating this year. Even in this trying 2020 season it all came together and we appreciate CVT’s recognition !!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

    1. Monty, you were too modest to mention that you decorated the “Gateway” (formerly the Johnnie Ramey Garden) with colored lights. So I’m taking this opportunity to tell everyone that I personally saw you do it 🙂
