After enjoying the Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas parade Saturday afternoon in downtown Oxford, Hunter Chamberlain, 1, of South Carolina, got to give a reindeer a little kiss on the nose in Centennial Park. Holding him is his mother, Ashley (Seeling) Chamberlain, a 2006 graduate of Oxford High School. The deer is from Rooftop Landing Reindeer Farm. Photo by C.J. Carnacchio.
