We may attempt to go to the tree lighting ceremony on Boston Common tonight if we can coordinate our schedules and such. It's expected to be very chilly tonight, but we'll bundle up. The official Boston Common holiday tree is reportedly a 45-foot white spruce donated by benefactors in Halifax, Nova Scotia -- much more modest in size than the 85-foot behemoth at the Faneuil Hall Market, which I guess suits the excesses of retail. Several trees around the Frog Pond skating rink will be lit as well, followed by the lighting of the trees on the 9-blocks-long Commonwealth Avenue Mall, which we saw being strung with lights just before Thanksgiving. If I get any decent pix, I'll post tomorrow -- the final day of NaBloPoMo (amen - enough with the posting every day already!).
