Christmas Eve in Astoria

With bright blue skies, cold air, and wind chill (but no snow or rain), I took a look at how some of the downtown businesses had decorated for Christmas.

Here's the tree inside Wells Fargo Bank.

The Astoria High School Band Boosters were raising funds playing music in the shelter of the Liberty Theatre's entranceway.

Gold baubles decorate a wreath in the office of the Liberty Theatre.

The street light outside of Lucy's Books on 12th Street.

T. Paul's Urban Cafe. By the way, the living trees with lights are a year-around feature I always enjoy.

Celebrate a Finnish Christmas at Finn Ware. (You knew we had to have a Finnish store with so many Finns as founding fathers and mothers.)

I especially like Santa's old-world look and gentle expression at Bellisima Salon.

Outside of Adagio, a horse masquerades as a reindeer.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

I'm so glad that gentleman (a new arrival in town at the time if I remember) found those old city decorations some years ago (5 to 10?) as they have made my Christmas reminding me of my childhood...Sue@Seaside
