There is no denying that Christmas is a special time of the year. The streets are adorned with twinkling lights, homes are filled with the scent of freshly baked cookies, and towns come alive with the holiday spirit of joy and love.
One such place where holiday JOY shines brightly is Chowan County. Perhaps the true essence of Christmas joy in Chowan County lies in the warmth and love that radiates from its residents.
The people here truly embody the spirit of the season, going above and beyond to spread joy and happiness.
One unique way that JOY is spread throughout Edenton and Chowan County during this time of year is through our tradition of JOY Trees, which you’ll find sparkling throughout the town and countryside.
From its inception a decade ago in downtown Edenton, the tradition of lighting JOY Trees has quickly spread throughout the county. So, take a ride with us and experience the warm welcome and holiday cheer that is just a part of living in this community!
Today, the last Thursday before Christmas, we want to show you a few of the JOY Trees that have popped up all around Edenton and Chowan County.
This is but a few photos of the many different trees lighting up the nights here, and if you didn’t get to see them in person this year, make sure you make a point to come out here next holiday season.
Every year, it’s bigger than the last.
