Amanda Judy and I set out to get our tree today. The Turn Around Farm on West st. in Ludlow was the spot. We were kind of early but I needed Christmas Spirit soon as possable. Talk with owner reveals horses start giving sleigh or wagon rides next week. Bring a carrot or apple for Duke the horse.

East Granby CT. offered these lawn ornaments.
Driving into Putnam CT. found Santa cruising the falls.
This town sure has its share of community activity and a great flag pole . " Don’t miss the 7Th Annual Holiday Dazzle Light Parade in downtown Putnam this Sunday beginning at 5 p.m. Over 100 floats will participate in this years parade. This is a great way to kick off your holiday season so dress warm and come to downtown Putnam this Sunday." http://www.winyradio.com/heres-whats-happening.htm If this is as good as river fire was, I'm there.
