I stumbled across this video and I watched it four times before even beginning this post because I was completely enchanted! It is a beautiful tribute to Portland during the holidays and I will be sharing it with friends and family that can't be with us here in Maine this holiday season. This video by Phillip Kotsishevskiy and Nathanial Sapp was published by Portland Downtown. Turn up the volume on your computer and get excited for the lights, music, shopping, history, cozy spots and delicious food that make celebrating in Maine a moving and memorable experience!

When the city is all done up in holiday lights my family has a date night to walk Congress Street and the Old Port taking pictures and enjoying the sights and sounds. We also love L.L. Bean's Northern Lights Celebration in Freeport. Do you have a Maine Christmas tradition? Share it on our Facebook Fan Page!
