Holidays in History
Steeped in history, Charleston rings in the holidays with a charm of its own. Decorated with sparkling white lights and shiny bows, Charleston dons all its finery for the holidays. Storefronts, homes, churches, boats and parks are adorned with lights, garland and holly showing their yuletide spirit.
