The holidays can easily sneak up on you. One minute, you’re enjoying a juicy Thanksgiving Turkey and the next minute, you are thrown into a large crowd of frenzied shoppers who are all vying for the hottest holiday gifts. If the thought of waiting in long shopping lines makes you physically sick and large crowds make you anxious, there is a utopia close by that will easily wipe away your holiday woes. Yes, I am talking about the charm and beauty of a South Texas Small Town. None other embodies all of the traits that we hold dear quite like Cuero. If you haven’t been to Cuero in a while, do yourself a favor and take the scenic route (Highway 87 if you’re coming from Victoria) to enjoy holiday shopping the way that it was intended to be: fun, frivolous, and stress free. The City of Cuero has created a beautiful environment to enjoy the holidays. Christmas in the park is a must for kids from 1 to 92. Drive through an ever growing dazzling display of festive lights and enjoy as cup of coco while you do it. Cuero boasts an impressive variety of shops to help you find all of the presents on your shopping list. Convenient late night shopping is offered Thursdays in December, so don’t forget to mark your calendars for December 5th, 12th and 19th and shop until 8 pm. Participating shops include A Special Stitch, Badda Bling, Be., Cuero Gift and Boutique, Cuero Pecan House, Friends, La Femme Boutique, Rendezvous, Rustic Rose, The Cooking Depot, The Wishing Well Gift Shoppe, Unique Décor and More, and Wagner’s Hardware and Gifts. The Main Street lights will help you get into the holiday spirit as you browse a surprising and unique selection from these stores.

            Cuero Main Street also will be sponsoring Christmas in Downtown December 12th through the 14th. Experience the wonder of small town Christmas with Carolers, Horse drawn carriage rides, ice skating, Christmas Treasure Hunt, and of course, shopping all while enjoying the beautiful lights on the historic downtown buildings! Santa and Mrs. Clause will be making an appearance, and nothing says Christmas like a Giant live snow globe. The event will be held Thursday from 5 pm until 9 pm, Friday from 5 pm until 10 pm and Saturday from 10 am until 10 pm. So take a moment this holiday season to savor the joy of Christmas when you unwrap Cuero for the holidays.
