Bad tree, badDisgusted citizen is disgusted; complains to the city about the new marketplace Christmas tree:

This Christmas tree in FH is a disgrace and needs to be replaced.

Roslindale tree

Yes, that's a lit Christmas tree in an apartment at Washington and Beech streets tonight. And while you can't tell from the photo, the lights were blinking.

A roving UHub correspondent, meanwhile, reports another lit tree on Canterbury Street, opposite the Sacred Heart School.

At least at the West Roxbury Home Depot, 80-degree temperatures on this Columbus Day weekend (and Thanksgiving) be damned.

Too soon

It was "We can't put this off another day" day in the South End, I guess?

Bob Ward makes some valid points in his rant about how much better New York does Christmas than Boston these days: We get the second-string Rockettes now and have to drive to Avon to see the Enchanted Village.

But he just can't leave bad enough alone:

How did you let it all slip away? Is Christmas really that politically incorrect? Are people really offended by the idea of Christmas? I remind you, the song is called Joy to the World, not Joy to the Christian World.

William McAdoo teaches us (well, me) something new: "Jingle Bells" was originally written about sleigh races down Salem Street (Savannah, GA can just shut it with its claim to the song).

Fitzgerald's maudlin Christmas column today (about some woman who hasn't talked to her daughter in years) got me to thinking: Hey, waitaminnit, what about his annual The Jew Who Loves Christmas column? Why, his column about a Jew fighting the War on Christmas is as much a part of Christmas in Boston as the Enchanted Village the tree at the Prudential Center Santas in Speedos.
