Fran Caruthers enjoys the holiday season.
She enjoys it so much that, for the past 17 years, she has opened her own business, Fran’s Tennessee Christmas, in the weeks and months leading to Christmas Day.
“I just love Christmas,” she said. “This is the most relaxing thing you can do. I get to do what I want.
“I had a chiropractic clinic that I ran, but it closed down. I got bored, and my kids talked me into opening a Christmas store and it’s gone from there.”
