Lenin lights up for the holidays

By Geeky Swedes · December 5th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Updated: Just returned from the annual lighting of the Lenin statue, complete with the McClure Middle School band and hot chocolate for the kids.

And Santa and his helper. In true Fremont fashion, Santa was handing out tangerines, not candy canes. As for Lenin, this year the lighting is a little more ominous, casting a red glow on the trees around it.

Which inspired us to go around and snap some other photos.

Looking up 35th St.

The Rocket, of course.

Even the Fremont Bridge is in the holiday spirit.

    Up until around WWII, oranges and apples were standard finds in the toes of stockings. The tradition started in the 1800's, when fresh fruits were difficult to get in the winter and thus considered luxuries.

    The problem with 98% of the photos of Christmas lights is that most people wait until way too late to start shooting. After it gets completely dark, you can either have the lights or the surroundings properly exposed. payday loans calgary
