Christmas is a time when family and friends gather together from near and far to spend time together as a whole. Continuing family traditions or making new ones of your own, we have something special and memorable that we do during the holiday season. This year, the staff at Marshall County Tourism is asking residents and visitors alike some of their holiday memories of growing up in Marshall County during the holiday season. We hope that you enjoy reading about different traditions and things that make Christmas special and maybe find a new tradition to start with your own family as well!
Paul Falkowski is a native to Marshall County. He was born and raised in Plymouth, Indiana and he works in Plymouth as well. Right now he is an Administrative Assistant at the Marshall County Historical Society and Museum as well as a Pharmacy Technician at a local Pharmacy in Plymouth, Indiana.
Holiday traditions are important to many, for Paul, his favorite holiday tradition inMarshall County is taking a drive through Nutmeg Ridge, a subdivision in Plymouth, to see the Christmas lights and the all of the beautiful luminaries. This is a fantastic subdivision to drive through if you are looking for beautiful Christmas lights to gander at during the holiday season!
Paul loves to ice skate on frozen ponds and sled with his family at the “Big Hill” locatedwithin Centennial Park in Plymouth. He also mentions that if you have never seen the Festival of Lights production at Plymouth Wesleyan Church, it is a must!
When asked what the most desired Christmas gift he received as a child he said that he received an Alphabet Quilt from his grandmother that was handmade. Homemade gifts from the heart are always the most cherished and memorable items a person receives whether it be at Christmas or any other time of the year.
We would like to thank Paul for his time that he took to help us with our “25 Days of Christmas” in Marshall County. We hope that others will be able to enjoy some of the wonderful memories that Paul shared with us this holiday season! Stay tuned to find out more about Christmas in Marshall County!!
