To The Daily Sun,
With the holidays upon us, it saddens me that one of my favorite traditions was put to an end. I grew up on Edwards Street, with fond memories as a child. As an adult, I so thoroughly enjoyed visiting my old street and seeing the outstanding displays, the hot cocoa, hotdogs, popcorn, amazing lights, watching the kids excitement and sharing fellowship with strangers, and then Santa showing up for the children.
What a shame it came to an end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understood the cause for the shutdown was, who might be liable if someone fell on ice? If this is the reason, shame on you! We choose to live in New Hampshire, where we have ice and snow, and guess what? It doesn't just snow on Edwards Street! I've slipped and fallen in the winter in many a place. If someone is so disgruntled that they feel a need to sue someone for their falling on ice, then relocate ... move to a state where there is no winter. If you choose to live here, deal with the weather at your own risk! No one is liable but yourself!
I hope one day we get back the wonderful Christmas gift that Edwards Street gave us. I personally want to thank all the residents on that street for what they did for this community, extending so much holiday spirit to us all.
In closing, I wish you all many blessings in the New Year, minus the Scrooge who ruined something wonderful!
