Here are some of the Christmas festivities happening in and around Boston I attended. Boston is definitely a magical city when all the Christmas decor gets put up.
|The State House's roof with gold leafing all lit up.|
|Waiting the lighting of the Christmas Tree in Boston Commons.|
|And here it is - the Boston Common's tree. |
This tree actually comes to Boston from the people of Nova Scotia as a gift in return for the troops Boston sent up to help fight one of their battles in the 1800's.
|The Messiah sing. First time I have ever been to one. And it was a good thing I was sitting next to a girl who knew all the notes for the alto section or else I would have been totally lost.|
|Look at that temperature!!|
|Bunker Hill Monument all lit up with a fresh coat of snow.|
|Charlestown, MA. I loved seeing the real pine bows hanging from door frames and banisters. It looked so quaint.|
|Charlestown, MA again. Isn't this place adorable! I love the street lamps with wreaths hanging from them. You can even see downtown Boston in the distance. I love this little town; maybe one day I will leave here.|
|Those aren't Christmas lights. Traffic.|
|Cookie decorating for the holidays.|
