Thomasville - It's a Christmas wish that's as old as Christmas itself. "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth," says Caroline Upton.

And Christmas wishes seem to come alive during Victorian Christmas in Thomasville. Some Victorian people even seem to come to life, like Elaine Partnow as Emily Dickenson. She says, "To recreate a period in history as Victorian Christmas does or as a Renaissance fair might do, it's something that I believe brings some appreciation to people for where we've been."

It makes Laurel Sanders appreciate where she's from. "It really makes me love Thomasville," she says. "It's just a great way to get to know the town and see how pretty it is during Christmas."

And there's another night left. Why should you come out? Executive Director Sharlene Celaya says, "Just people entertaining up and down the streets, great food, wonderful carriage rides. "It's just a wonderful evening a great time to be out and be celebrating Christmas."

Celebrating a Victorian Christmas. The second night of Victorian Christmas kicks off at 6 O'clock Friday in Downtown Thomasville.
