One of our town's traditions that I just love is the Christmas tree. Lots of places have a city tree with an official lighting and all that.
But up until now I had never seen one IN the street, as in, smack dab in the middle.
Sure enough, city workers take out a few bricks at the end of Main Street each year and plunk that tree right in. They use a boom truck with a guy in a bucket to help stand it up. Brady gets a kick out of that.
It happens to be at the turn-around corner so you have to be careful to turn wide this time of year. As far as I know, no one has ever whacked into the tree.
It's just about the most festive thing. I love it.
Like a lot of bloggers, I won't be back for another week. So Merry Christmas!
We're celebrating our Christmas in our little town like usual with smoked turkey, smoked pork loin, salads and corn, potatoes and pies.
We got a foot of snow Saturday night, so I'm guessing we'll have some of the white stuff left. It's beautiful out there. New for this year is the holiday Brady invented, called "The Rise of Christmas" which takes place on the day before the day before Christmas. More on that in another post.
What are your plans for Christmas?
