T he Columbus-Fall River area was certainly swept up in holiday spirit this week.

Many homes across the area were illuminated with bright seasonal lights, colorful decorations and unique floats.

Some of the best home light displays were beyond Columbus and Fall River. Motorists traveling along Highway 16 a few miles west of Fall River will notice a heavily decorated farmhouse, bursting with holiday illumination.

While the area had little snow on the ground as of Thursday morning, forecasters predicted a mild snow storm to blanket the area with fresh snow Thursday night into Friday. Whether or not the Columbus area sees a white Christmas, the holiday spirit is definitely alive and well throughout the community.
