After dinner, I pass again through Market Square, where the city’s Christmas tree sparkles. At the annual tree lighting (this year on December 1), you’ll find bagpipers and festive carolers, with local businesses passing out cookies and drinks.
The following evening brings the Holiday Parade, a staple for more than 25 years, with a spirited array of floats, bands, and people dressed in costume. The scene gets only more beautiful when it snows. Even Scrooge might smile then.
