Christmas spirit is abundant on the Island this week with the annual cookie carnival and lunch with Santa and Mrs. Claus both held at the Gregg Fellowship Center.
The town tree is decorated and lots of folks got their outdoor lights up before the weather turned nasty.
The frigid temps did require canceling the live nativity that was scheduled for Saturday night, however. And today we all learned that the ferry season has come to an abrupt end, largely because of the 8 to 10 inch thick ice in the harbor. Most people had zero to four degrees as their early morning tempurature today.
Warmer temps (slightly) are supposed to be here for tomorrow which will be good news to the youngsters and staff from BI Community School who will be out caroling in the afternoon.
More about the Island holiday season will be in the January issue of NorthernIslander.
