Ted and I walked around Charleston’s historic district today to check out the Christmas decorations. Wreaths were a common theme on doors, gates and porches. No blow-up Santas in sight.
Many of these homes have back entrances on an ally or shared driveway with walls and gates for privacy, providing the perfect place to decorate.
Many of the wreaths we saw were traditional evergreen, and most appeared real, with natural decorations of berries and cones.
This display had very plain wreaths but used woven animal heads mounted to the windows to hang the wreaths and a wooden trough of green apples. It was pretty, especially against the old brick exterior.
Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. Various local and state celebrations of the anniversary date back to at least 1885 and National Flag Day was adopted in 1949.
Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum proudly displays the US Flag every day.
This banner serves as an additional patriotic reminder as you approach the aircraft carrier.
