Merry Christmas to All
For Jewish people, Christmas was the day to head for Larry's Deli. Alas, the deli is no more and Plainfield's Jewish population is sparse.
Plainfield's ever-increasing diversity means that some folks have already observed their major holiday on Eid al-Adha or Diwali.
Whatever you will be doing in the next couple of days, Plaintalker wishes you enjoyment with friends and family. If you are far from your relatives, you can come for dinner at the First Unitarian Society of Plainfield at Park & Seventh or perhaps at other churches.
As a reporter, I had to work one holiday per year and when I picked Christmas, the assignment often was to cover the re-enactment of Washington crossing the Delaware. It was pretty much the same story every year, except perhaps the time it was so cold that the river police wouldn't let the re-enactors put their boats in the water and they just walked across the bridge. I was glad when an editor decided just to pick up the story from the Associated Press and I only had to go to Somerville to cover a free holiday dinner.
Have a pleasant couple of days!
