In 1619, Virginians celebrated the First(ish) Thanksgiving. We have been ruining it ever since.
I’m thankful to the Advance for providing Shaun Kenney’s column🦃
I enjoyed your column today. Those of us who've been around these parts for a long time will tell you that those beautiful Christmas streets in downtown Fredericksburg did not start with white lights on pear trees (or partridges either, for that matter). Way back we had silver garlands strung from one side of the street to the other, above traffic and dazzling shoppers and drivers alike. By the late 60s or early 70s (not sure about the exact time frame) those silver garlands garlands were replaced with alternating red and green ones. I miss those garlands from the days of yore. Happy Thanksgiving!
I remember the pear!! Lovely column Shaun.
