HOLT — Locals are flocking to Country Christmas, a nursery’s month-long fundraiser to benefit a church youth group.

Last weekend, kids could meet Santa Claus, watch an outdoor Christmas movie, and participate in face painting and ornament making at Oliver’s Nursery. Many patrons walked through the lighted Christmas displays while kids played in the snow pit, which stayed occupied the entire night.

Many families were from Holt, but some came from neighboring communities Crestview and Baker. 

“We saw the ad in the paper,” said Larry Laux of Baker, who with his wife Debra brought granddaughter Shayla Hampton, 3, to visit Santa.

“She wouldn’t have anything to do with it,” Laux said.

Still, Laux was grateful the nursery organized the event.

“There are not a whole lot of things to take kids to around here,” he said.
