Every year, this iconic photo shows up on Facebook, and other social media sites and is shared hundreds of times over.  It is such a shame that an image that brings a smile to so many, is all but a memory.  I wish the city of Worcester would at least project the tree of lights onto the exterior of Denholms for the holiday season or even just for First Night.  Downtown needs some sparkle, some light, to help foster a festive atmosphere. How amazing would it be to have this replicated for future generations to enjoy.  Other big cities across the nation still dress up their former stores facades with exterior lights to continue the tradition, isn't it time we took a step forward and treated our own buildings with a bit more dignity, especially at the holidays.
