The Holidays are upon us! Chanukkah has just finished and now we're rolling into the time of year where everything is lit up and smells like pine trees, Christmas! And as most things are, Christmas is always beautiful in Boston!
This past Thursday I went into town for a busy night. First stopping at NOA Gifts at 88 Charles Street, where they sell my work, for an open house with wine and cheese! Though I couldn't stay long as I had to hustle to catch the world class ice skaters on the frog pond that put on a spectacular show, simply amazing!
Once they wrapped up, it was off to explore for a while as a very thick fog began to settle in, which just made things that much more interesting. So I went off to get some cool fog shots, passing up the musical entertainment. Finally making my way down to Faneuil Hall, assuming it would be empty as everyone was at the Common, of which I was correct. And that is when I made today's photo, of the 42 foot Christmas tree at Faneuil Hall!
After getting the shot I wanted, I ran and grabbed a slice of pizza, then hustled back to the common to make it back in time to see Mayor Menino perform the 72nd Annual Tree Lighting on Boston Common! Which was his last one as Mayor of Boston!
After the main events, I still hung around and wandered the city for a while, as it was 50 degrees out and a rather exceptionally pleasing evening. If you didn't make it out this year, I highly recommend planning for next year! I've gone almost every year, and yet to be disappointed !
Whatever name you may give to this special time of year, I wish you the best holiday possible !
Till next time,
