Today’s lesson in not everything in what it seems.
Yesterday afternoon, I was perusing the We Love Beantown Twitter timeline when I came across a post linking to Boston’s Facebook page, noting the departure of the Common’s Christmas tree from its previous home in Nova Scotia.
Is this not America, I thought? I had to share my grievance:
It wasn’t long before a friend pointed out that I should check my derision at the door – after all, the tree is part of a nearly half-century long tradition of gratitude from the Nova Scotians.
