Holiday Greetings from Portland, Maine

Here is your Christmas card from me to you:

It's that time of year when there's a snap in the frosty air and the snow crunches under foot. I took a little walk.... well, a brisk walk downtown this week to see the always eclectic holiday decorations. The small park beside the Eastland Hotel held strange shaped lights. The cocktail bar at the top of the Eastland is just below the sign for a great view of the city.

Further down the street is a column of balls. The Time and Temperature building display is in the background.

Monument Square, the main downtown square was not so interesting.... just a big tree with tiny lights.

Longfellow Square, on the other hand, had the best display in town. Who knew pink and orange went together??

  1. I wonder if I could find "Christmas Spirit" if I took a walk. Yours looks like, well like a "Winter Wonderland." Next year I'll try a walk downtown. Have a very happy holiday, Daniel. Happy skiing/skating. We, too, will be up in the snow - well, sitting by the fire, watching it snow.
