It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .part 2





Our city has a very old tree in Esther Short Park downtown and that is where we have the Christmas tree lighting each year the day after Thanksgiving. It is sponsored by the electric company who place all the thousands of lights on it each year. There was a big crowd. They had carolers singing on the nearby stage and free coffee and cider for the general public. Afterwards, we went across the street to the Hilton Hotel to hear a concert of Christmas music. We got in free with a can of food for the needy. Following that, I went over to the Red Lion at the Quay and viewed the Christmas trees they had on display decorated by individuals for the Christmas Tree Festival. It was a wonderful night with no rain!

Sounds like just the thing to get one in the Christmas spirit. I've been thinking about you as I unpacked my Snowmen.

I'm glad you managed to post them! I love Christmas trees, ours aren't so pretty though because most of what's put on them is stolen away :-(

Everyone is decorating for Christmas, I guess I had better get with it. Those wreaths you made are lovely.

Christmas is the time for lights, decorations and magyc! I love Christmas trees in the streets!We have no carols singers here, but I like them ! that's why I have some in my Christmas village: I do there all what I can't find in reality Ü

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
