Merry Christmas!

"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!"

- Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836

I'm Still Here!

Pudgey assures you!
It's just been incredibly hectic in my neck of the woods
with Christmas events, illnesses... and particularly finals!
But tomorrow morning, I'm due for my last exam, which means 
until the end of January, I'll finally be permitted to sit back and relax (and blog!)

Until then, I'm wishing you all a wonderful week

Nantucket Christmas Stroll!

Christmas 2009
Happy December, everyone!

Okay, so I'm a couple days late, but hey...
I'm still excited, aren't you? ♥

Today marks the beginning of a very special event
that takes place on Nantucket every December.....

From the evening of December 3rd continuing until the 5th,
the island of Nantucket is transformed into a Dickensian wonderland!
The holiday festivities first kick off with the Chamber's annual tree lighting 
ceremony in which hundreds of trees lining the island are officially lit.

Beautiful Main Street
Other events throughout the weekend will include: Holiday story-telling,
caroling, decorating contests, walking tours, Christmas bazaars, house tours...
 And how could I forget? 
The big man himself, Santa Claus, accompanied by 
his wife, will formally pay a visit to the island (from the help of a Coast Guard 
vessel) on Saturday, parading up Main Street for a merry meet and greet!

So those of you who live in or around the Cape Cod 
area, I strongly suggest you check it out!
... this is one Christmas memory 
you won't soon forget!
