Such Merriment!

At halftime of the Redskins/Saints football game (it was tied 17-all),we decided to take a stroll down Wisconsin Avenue to see whatmerriment Georgetown held for us. It was, afterall, three p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6, and the Georgetown Business Improvement District was hosting its "magical holiday celebration for all" from 3 to 6 p.m. at Wisconsin and M.

You know, they say if you stand at Wisconsin and M inGeorgetown long enough, you'll see everyone you know pass by. We waited half and hour, didn't see anyone we knew ... except for ...wait a minute is that? yes it is! It's Santa Claus. He's here! In Georgetown! Quick, take his photo! Wow! And over there, those Madrigal Singers....or people dressed up like Madrigal singers....take their picture too.

Hey, lots of people here. The sun is shining brightly. Not like yesterday, sleet, snow, rain, cold. Today, it is cheery, sunny. A perfect day for Merriment. Lots of holiday music performances, andlater, candlelight caroling with the National Philharmonic. Great. I'll come back down after the football game. Can the Redskins knockoff the undefeated Saints? If you believe in miracles, yes they can. If you believe in Santa Claus, just know this, we saw him, live!, at Wisc. and M.
