Oxford’s heart-warming Christmas decorations recently earned national attention. Country Living listed Oxford among its 20 best small towns for Christmas in USA.

Oxford is ranked 14th among towns like Santa Claus, Indiana and Jackson, Wyoming.

Country Living said, “It may not often get cold and snowy in this college town, but the locals have a clear understanding of Christmas giving. The Gingerbread Village, elaborate structures made from scratch each year by volunteers, benefits local food banks. The town also holds an Ornament Auction, selling unique decorations made by local artists, to raise money for its arts council.”
