Those of you who are regular readers know that there is no love lost between me and our "new" town square. I hate it's coldness. It's lack of heart. It's lack of friendliness. I could go on and on about how much I hate it.
That said, I do think that the City Fathers and Mothers have done a fine job of decorating it for Christmas this year. It really is festive.
And this year we got a new tree! A round one! I hated that square one they were using.
Looks like these packages may have been shaken one time too many!
Poinsettias, a plant native to Mexico, have been planted all around the square. They add a bright dash of color for the holiday season.
They are even lining the mostly non-operational fountain.
A Santa's Village of sorts has been set up. These buildings change with the season and the celebration. I think they are an excellent addition to the landscape of that square.
And let us not forget the true meaning of Christmas.
