A Savannah Christmas…
Bruce Willis here…the other Bruce Willis who lives with Reagan Summerside…
and I’m here to take you on a Christmas stroll around Savannah, Georgia. The weather is perfect, just a touch of chill in the air with bright blue skies.
This is such a fine place that back in the Christmas of 1864 when Sherman saw fit to park his unwelcome butt in our fair city he sent Lincoln a telegram saying I beg to present you as a Christmas Gift, the City of Savannah.
Everyone in Savannah decorates their houses Southern style with…
and the Savannah River sparkles at night.
Nothing escapes red bows, twinkling lights and evergreens. We may not have snow but we sure have everything else.
Saint John’s church celebrates with flowers and manger. There's midnight mass and the best choir ever.
And then there’s the shopping on all the stores on Broughton Street…not that anyone would want this thing!
My favorite part of a Savannah Christmas is the tree at Auntie KiKi’s. There's no place like home and I’m sure there’s a bone for me under there somewhere.
And of course there's Christmas dinner and the food! Ham, red-eye gravy and red velvet cake! Maybe a pecan pie or two just for fun. I love the part where I get fed treats under the table.
What is the favorite Christmas decoration in your town? The tree in the city square? Manger scene with live animals? Christmas is just the best time ever.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and 2013.
Hugs, BW and Reagan
