Tis the Season

Christmas is more than just a season it’s a feeling…There’s a chill in the air, the scent of smoldering firewood fills the air, and delicious aromas are everywhere. Local businesses spread holiday cheer all while a small town comes together during the busiest time of the year. In Comanche, Texas, we believe that Christmas is more than just a season: it’s a feeling… a feeling that is capable of filling the soul with tremendous warmth even on the frostiest of nights. What does the Christmas season mean to you? To some it’s about giving and receiving gifts, for others it may be putting up the tree, celebrating the reason for the season, kiddo’s anxiously awaiting Santa’s arrival or listening to classic carols. 

This season let the town of Comanche show you what Christmas means to us and experience why this Holiday season is more than just a season, but a feeling!  Enjoy some of Comanche’s annual traditions on the historic downtown square as a 50,000-light synchronized light show kicks off the Christmas season on November 30. You can tune into FM 87.9 and enjoy the show from the comforts of your vehicle or take an evening stroll around the courthouse with the family. If you’re looking for weekend fun grab your friends & family and spend the day at the ice-skating rink or attend the open house on

December 7th at the Comanche County Museum. Be sure to mark your calendars for December 14th as local shops participate in the holiday fun with events like Christmas trivia and take a trip to our beautiful historic depot and museum for a list and map of the homes that are lit up and decorated for the Christmas season, there are so many beautifully decorated homes in Comanche that it will be worth the drive to see all the festive homes. The evening of the 14th holds plenty of excitement with a lighted Christmas parade, photos with Santa, and hot cocoa, or wassail around the courthouse that has been transformed into a colorful Christmas village, all to get you in the holiday mood.
