Pictures from the tour

December 21st, 2010

My friend Katherine and her husband went back over the Somerville Illuminations Tour route the next night, and took some pictures. This will give you an idea:

More below the fold:

Christmas mice!

Gingerbread man!

A relatively subdued white-light fantasy:

… but wait? What is that in the corner?

Why, ’tis the Christmas Frog!

The Christmas Frog makes me feel a little better about a choice I made on the tour. I was going on a Christmas tour, after all, so it’s not like I was going to get all militantly Jewish about anything. However, when the trolley guide suggested we sing “Joy to the World,” I’m afraid I couldn’t help but call out, “Jeremiah was a bullfrog!”

The other occupants were too drunk to notice. But now I know that Jeremiah the Christmas Frog probably heard me, and appreciated my efforts. Merry Christmas, Jeremiah. Enjoy that fine wine of yours.

    Sleep in heavenly peas, Jeremiah!

    I was listening to the all-Christmas music station recently (my kids insist!), and there was a mash-up of both versions of Joy to the World. It was awesome. I only wish I had caught the artist.

    Wow! I love the lights on the house with the frog-pretty!

    Found it – it was Mariah Carey.
