The lights are up around the neighborhood, and the cold and snow makes it feel very Christmas-y. The spirit of the season is expressed in many ways, from the lights on homes, to the monument tree. Here is a lovely small nativity scene, in an old storefront on Brereton Street.
And you may have noticed a spot of light on color up on the old billboard frame on a building on Bigelow Boulevard, just inside the Polish Hill border by the Bloomfield Bridge:
It’s a dove, by Polish Hill sculptor Tim Kaulen.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all the best of the season to everyone!
