I believe initially the decorations paid homage to the fact that O’Henry penned 'The Gift of the Magi" in a booth in the bar room. It is truly one of the most magical Christmas stories.

I volunteered to the decorating crew back in 1988 … 35 years later, I lead the decorating crew and it is one of my greatest labors of love.


Is it the snowy birch branches suspended magically beneath the bar room ceiling proudly attiring 14,000 tiny red bulbs? The moving Christmas villages that wrap around the 180 year old façade, beckoning wide eyed children to steal a glance? Or perhaps the Victorian family of carol singers, expressing stoicism for some 50 years in the same place, or the timeworn bells that have endured seven decades of festivities, in need of a little more glue and a lot more love each and every season.

It takes eighteen able bodies over two weeks to assemble our annual display whose labor-intensive preparation begins in late August.

The results are always the same…happiness, joy, awe and elation.

Is it worth it? …. It’s always worth it !!!
