Pictures from the tour

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:

Christmas mice!

… 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.
