First Night organizers have called off the 7 p.m. fireworks over the Common, and the 6 p.m. parade that was to precede them because it'll be just too damn cold. The midnight fireworks over Boston Harbor, however, are still on, because presumably the totally sober adults who would watch them outside will be smart enough to dress appropriately.

Also cancelled: Read more.

Realist Rob reports his wife snapped this display at the CVS on Bridge Street in Weymouth today.

Thomas Lawson, a native of Charlestown, was not well liked on Wall Street back in the day. Lawson, who started working as a bank clerk after he ran away from home at 12, became rich as a speculator in copper stocks, but later tried to reform Wall Street, which, as you can see from this 1905 cover of Puck magazine, did not much appreciate the attention.

Jewish Boston goes on a latke hunt in time for Channukah. Not as easy as it might seem:

One would think that the Chestnut Hill Wegmans would stock latkes. They have subs, salads, sushi, and a person whose job it is to offer samples of cannoli. However: You will brave the crowds, and you will be sorely disappointed.
