“Tis the season! With wreaths on every door and twinkling lights in windows of old New England homes, the holiday season is well underway here in Maine. It’s time for fun festivals — like the Earmuff Festival in Farmington last week, honoring the inventor of the ubiquitous ear warmers–and unique decorations such as the village Christmas tree in Rockland comprised entirely of lobster traps. And we won’t forget church fairs and the seasonal decorations on every village green. Don’t shy away from Maine in winter — it’s truly a wonderful season here and Santa has been known to arrive in all kinds of unique ways, from fire trucks to helicopters and lobster boats. More later on all there is to see and do in Maine in winter!
