Andrew Broadwater has been playing Christmas songs all year long. All the traditional favorites, "Silent Night" and "Jingle Bells" and others, he's played them on the piano, on the viola, even on the steel drum.
If there's a downside to the joy of operating a 55,000-bulb holiday light display that's synchronized to popular Christmas music, it's the time it took to program the 30-minute extravaganza: 12 hours of coding for every minute of show, the equivalent of nine 40-hour work weeks.
Undaunted by the stormy weather, plenty of people in the holiday spirit walked up and down the streets of downtown Havre de Grace Sunday night to visit historic homes and churches on the city's 40th annual Candlelight Tour of Historic Havre de Grace.
The holidays are here before you know it and often gone before you've had a chance to sample any of the wonderful seasonal offerings. Taking a day trip to any of these destinations will provide a quick cup of cheer.
