Nothing fires up the old Christmas spirit quite like the beeping of heavy equipment and Santa's helpers in their bright orange vests setting up this year's Christmas tree. All joking aside, we New Englanders are all very lucky to live in such picturesque towns during the holiday season. It isn't difficult envisioning George Bailey running the 4 minute mile through Rochester, Dover or Portsmouth.
