Where was the Christ­mas in the dec­o­ra­tions?

The Covington News - - OPINION -

Dear ed­i­tor,

I read on Sun­day that the lights and dec­o­ra­tions are be­ing taken down in the square this week. The lights were pretty, mak­ing the town look like a beach re­sort.

If you squinted just right, the trees looked like palm trees cov­ered in lights. I don’t mean to be neg­a­tive, but where were the Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions?

Oh, there was a tree (with white lights) tucked over in the cor­ner but ev­ery­thing else looked like a tourist spot. We had the new snowflake lights last year, but again no Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions. The snowflakes were moved down the street this year. What hap­pened to the candy canes that the “Vam­pire Diaries” folks do­nated? At least they made the square look a lit­tle fes­tive. I missed the Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions this year. Per­haps we could get some point­ers from our neigh­bors in Por­terdale and Ox­ford: Their Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions were de­light­ful.

I may as well bring up the Christ­mas pa­rade while I’m at it. It was most un­usual to be at a pa­rade where the pa­rade had to stop ev­ery few min­utes so that it could “cross over it­self.” I’ve never seen that be­fore! Happy New Year to all, S. G. Wofford, Cov­ing­ton
