And then, some 180 miles away, there's downtown Binghamton, New York, where I work.
We have our own beauty here, especially on a December 21 day when it is in the 60's and the sun is shining. It was unbelievable and the walk was a pleasure. This just doesn't often happen on the first day of winter.
In a building built in 1904, a local insurance company has held caroling in their lobby for many years now. This year, the caroling by their employees was yesterday. As I entered the packed lobby, this was my view.
More close up. The murals on the walls, I understand, date from the 1980's. And yes, what you see on the staircase is is marble.
The singers and musicians assembled.
And sang Silver Bells.
Frosty the Snowman.
And O Christmas Tree.
Enjoy the season.
