Ok, so a friend of mine and I worked on a intro speech to the parade.
So without further ado here you are:
"Greetings, one and all! And welcome to this most festive season. At this magical time of year, people from all around gather together to share in their comfort. Every so often this season becomes full of magic, where your inner most holiday wish can come true. That special toy, or even an enchanting white Christmas.
"One very special Christmas began with just a wish, a wish for a white Christmas, of snow and icicles. A young boy dreamed of snow upon a Christmas Eve night, a Christmas of white."
"We welcome you now, to share in the holiday delight, this A Christmas Wish."
