This is a Christmas for the ages in a year that will go down in modern history as one of the most difficult this nation, and many nations of the world, have experienced.
However, as the Christmas Holiday is upon us, the darkness is clearing away, and a bright new light is beginning to shine. The arrival of vaccines that can save hundreds of thousands of lives isn’t exactly like the birth of Jesus, but giving life to those who might lose them otherwise, is about a miracle.
With more than 300,000 Americans dead from the virus by Christmas brings to mind the song made so famous by the late Elvis Presley.
It goes like this:
“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you. I’ll be so blue just thinking about you. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree wont’ be the same dear, if you;’re not here with me. And when those blue snowflakes start falling, that’s when those blue memories start calling. You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white. But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue Christmas. You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white. But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue Christmas.”
Great stuff that Elvis Presley magnum opus to the holiday.

After all, they are beautiful, green and golden and impeccable, more so in many ways than what the Town of Wellesley installs on its poles every Christmas.
The only difference – Wellesley can afford it – Everett should think more carefully about its spending in the face of the crisis the city is facing with the virus and Encore.
The juxtaposition of lines of people wearing face mask along the length of Chelsea Street underneath these stunning wreaths, brings to mind one of the cruel ironies of the Christmas season. Everything that glitters, like the wreaths, brings to mind one of the cruel ironies of the Christmas season.
