To all our friends near and far: Happy holidays!
Since 1971, the Canadian province of Halifax has sent a tree to Boston for Christmas. This year, the tree is dedicated to healthcare workers to honor both Boston’s response after the Halifax Explosion and those who are working on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, the tree came to Boston via ship instead of the usual drive through Canada, Maine, and New Hampshire for all to see. Thanks to Heather and Tony Sampson of West Bay, Richmond, Nova Scotia, who donated this year’s tree. And for all who worked in Canada and Boston to get the tree to Boston.
