It Was Magical: Alexandria’s Annual Scottish Christmas Walk

Britt Patterson

Can we just take a moment to talk about the absolute blast we had at the Alexandria Scottish Christmas Parade? It was an awesome day of festive joy right in the heart of our community, and we were right there in the middle of the excitement! Did you spot The Patterson Group on the route?!

Like we had shared last week, the holidays in Alexandria feel like a movie. And walking in the parade felt even better than a Hallmark Christmas movie because it was real life. We loved spotting familiar faces in the crowd—shout out to our friends, awesome past clients, and the best neighbors ever! Waving to you all from the back of the truck bed was the highlight of our day as we blasted Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You!” The gloomy weather couldn't even dampen our spirits because the energy from everyone along the route was just contagious.

From bagpipers playing classic tunes to the whimsical decorations, the parade had that perfect mix of Scottish charm and holiday magic. Can we just take a second to express our heartfelt gratitude? Being part of such a fantastic community event reminded us why we love this town so much. Seeing familiar faces, catching up with everyone, and feeling the warmth of togetherness – it's what makes this season so special.
