“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!”

The Christmas season has started! The Penacook Christmas Tree is up and lit in the town square and white candles shine in all the windows of the Merchant Block! (The candles are in memory of friends and family. My parents had a candle “lit” in memory of my brother Tom.)

Missing this year are the old Christmas Tree decorations that usually adorn the telephone poles. There has been so much construction – that the city probably decided not to bother. Downtown Penacook is such a quaint place. Unfortunately, this may be the last Christmas season that it will look like this, since there is going to be a traffic circle/rotary built right in the middle of downtown! UGH! I won’t go into how obscene this is to me and many others. It will destroy the look of our quaint historic downtown! But – we have this year, and this year, our hometown has a lovely tree! I am hoping for a bit more snow before Christmas! I will be sure to take more photos of the square and the tree.

As I write this, I am watching Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas – a classic. It is only one of many Christmas Specials that I will be watching over the next few weeks! We do not have too much snow on the ground – but I am hopeful that this year we will have a White Christmas.

Enjoy the Season Everyone!
