Wagon rides are a fam­ily af­fair for the Hare crew.

“We’ve been com­ing here for the past three years be­cause it’s a great way to get out­side and en­joy Christ­mas,” said Aimee Hare, as she and her three sons got ready for the wagon ride Dec. 1 at the an­nual Christ­mas in the Coun­try event at Sco­tian Gold in Cold­brook.

“This is a day we put aside for the kids. We’ve been or­ga­niz­ing it for over a decade, and it’s a good op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to go out to­gether.” — Store man­ager Rob Bedard

Her mother, Josi­lyn, sat to one side with Field­ing, five, as Aimee Hare sat on the next seat over with Gar­dener, three, and Ever, seven.

“Plus, we also get to check out how long Santa’s beard is,” said Aimee.

The event also fea­tured cook­ies and crafts in the store’s up­stairs area, where fam­i­lies in­clud­ing Jes­sica Joshua and her three chil­dren Walker, six, Al­lie, four, and Mad­die, two, de­signed San­tas with pa­per plates, con­struc­tion pa­per and marsh­mal­lows – all held to­gether with a lit­tle glue.

Store man­ager Rob Bedard said the event “is al­ways a lot of fun for ev­ery­one.”

“This is a day we put aside for the kids. We’ve been or­ga­niz­ing it for over a decade, and it’s a good op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to go out to­gether,” he said.
