Special Chrstmas Tree

Jump to last reply

Once again a special Christmas tree has been transported from Nova Scotia to Boston where it is standing on the Common. A tree lighting free to the public is Nov. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. This giant fir is a gift of long remembered appreciation for help from Boston to Halifax. In December 1917 there was a horrific explosion in the harbor as two ships collided, one of them with a cargo of munitions bound for France. This killed a thousand, injured many more, and caused devastation in Halifax itself.

First responders came from Boston arriving despite a snow storm and remaining for some period. In gratitude ever since Halifax has shipped a huge tree for Boston, especially meaningful in this year of the Boston Marathon bombing. Thanks Halifax from one in the Boston area who enjoyed a visit to Nova Scotia not long ago.

Look under www.celebrateboston.com, under Events, and then down to November items to read the entire story.

Shared as a Christmas message. Anyone else have a story?
