‘Tis the season

SOMEWHERE NEAR ROCK HALL — Not long after the leftovers from Thanksgiving have been put away in the fridge or sent home with Uncle Fred, you can count on Christmas- and Hanukkah-themed decorations magically, mysteriously showing up along the stretch of state Route 20 in the area known locally as the Double Woods.

Traditionally, a Nativity scene is the first to appear.

There’s usually a bit of whimsy too — like Santa’s red suit, beard and black belt on a makeshift clothesline.

And lots of tinsel.

And Christmas balls and stockings and candy canes.

And elves — sometimes hanging from their feet.

  1. This tradition is definitely in the top 10, make that top five reasons why the people of Kent County are special. A Very Merry Christmas to you all. ⛄

  2. Going to visit my 97 year old mother at the assisted living in Rock Hall always makes me sad. But driving by these decorations seems to lighten the load…she would love them!
