In addition to my previous holiday round-up, I wanted to mention Santa.
Lansdowne has a lot of old time holiday habits - fireworks, parades, etc. - but my favorite is Santa on the fire engine.
Growing up as the daughter of a firefighter, Santa always arrived on a fire engine. Or a ladder truck.
Here, he comes in the back of the fire company's pickup, preceded by the ladder and the engine, both with sirens wailing. East side of town in the morning, west side of town in the afternoon. As of today, all sides of town are still covered in the candy canes Santa threw to everyone who came out of their house to wavebat him.
