The title of this blog is a play on words in response to the fact that tonight is the first Midnight Madness of the season in historic Annapolis. Other than taking the dog for a walk downtown, I don’t think I’ll really be able to participate…just too much work to do in and around the house, getting ready for the holidays.
But on all my walks downtown I can see that Christmas has taken over the town.The St. Claire Wright/History Quest has a new name. It is now the Christmas Store. All the storefronts are festooned in ribbons and bows, colorful lights, or a little bit of both. I love looking at all the pretty window displays but I do become overwhelmed by seeing too much Christmas display too early. My preference is for live decoration, and my concern is that live decoration quickly fades under too much warm weather and sunshine.
Never fear, the weather has been staying cold for now. Pretty soon I’ll start humming those holiday tunes, wrapping presents and putting them under the tree. Santa is alive and well in Annapolis.
