Post 1050 - Christmas Tie, Day Fifteen

The penultimate day of the Christmas ties for 2009.

These ones were taken in front of The Waverley Inn on Barrington Street in downtown Halifax. It has been in continuous use since 1867. P.T. Barnum, Oscar Wilde, and George Vanderbilt were guests there at one time or another. Wilde is said to haunt the place. It is so lovely there, that I can't blame him.

Every Christmas, they put out these incredible displays. I have enjoyed them for years now, and they change things up every year, so it makes sense to check it out every December.

The pictures were taken by the manager/owner Calvin. Thank you, Calvin.

Everybody reading this from out of town: If you come to downtown Halifax, stay at the Waverley Inn. Tell them Bevboy's Blog sent you. They won't know what you're talking about, but it will start an interesting conversation.

Tomorrow: The final tie in this year's series!
