Christmas is a time of gratitude, and for those of us at Saratoga Wire we have a great deal for which to be grateful.
Most of all, we're grateful that you have let us be a part of your daily routine.
As we gather on Christmas Day with family and friends, we offer a poem to make your day just a little brighter (and with our apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, who wrote "Twas the Night Before Christmas in 1822 and has probably regretted what people have done to it ever since).
Lights on Broadway
Twas the night before Christmas and all through downtown,
The stores were all glowing, with nary a sound.
The bright shiny windows of this downtown bank,
Showed people of Saratoga they had plenty to thank.
A plane landed on the north side, confused by the light.
It was the Riggi house ablaze again, oh what a sight!
On Caroline Street the cold, it was biting,
But this house's lights made it oh, so inviting.
Christmas Eve service at the United Methodist Church on Fifth Avenue
Last night people worshipped, offering goodwill and cheer,
While children harbored hopes that St. Nicholas was near.
Later, cars passing by were met with music and laughter,
As a family provided wishes of a happy ever after.
Thank you Saratoga for a wonderful four months.
The staff of Saratoga Wire.
