Wordless Wednesday

**UPDATE**

Thanks so much to everyone for their comments about my Wordless Wednesday photo! I took this picture November 19, 2006 in Gettysburg, PA. November 19th is the anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the event in 2006. My post on the event is here.

We were leaving Gettysburg after the event when we passed by Santa standing on the corner. Paul stopped so Sara and I could take his picture. We are in the area of Gettysburg where the round about called the Diamond is located. The town Christmas Tree is here too. I've added some other photos at the bottom of the post. The pictures are of Sara and me with Santa and the Christmas Tree.

Santa is portraying a Civil War Santa. He was the nicest man. Maybe he really was Santa! You can find information about the Civil War Santa at a website called Original Santa. They have a cover of Harper's Weekly showing a Civil War Santa.

Happy WW! :-)
BTW, we were in Dublin, Ireland, last spring for the Temple Bar scene.
(We didn't go in to drink, just to see and get the picture. It's historic.)

Merry Christmas. I wonder if he wanted to be a star spangled Santa when he grew up. My little girl did and her Grandma came through for her. See my Santa girl.
