The Spirit of Christmas in Oriental

Every year, on the second weekend of December, the town of Oriental hosts The Spirit of Christmas.  There’s a parade, musical presentations, a live Nativity and more.  All the local businesses open their doors to offer delectable goodies and treats.  River Neuse Suites once again held their Annual Open House, with delicious Seafood Chowder, Chicken Soup, Gourmet Biscotti and Spiced Cider.
On Saturday villagers walk the miles of luminaries to light Oriental’s streets in a soft glow of candlelight.  There’s a hush over the village as visitors and citizens alike pause to enjoy the reflection of
hundreds of candles on the water.
