I didn’t realize this was local…

So when my brother came out from Tucson, he noticed how green it is in Pennsylvania. That I knew would be very different than where he came from.

But he also noticed something else that I’ve recently come to find out is a “northeastern U.S.” thing, and which is very big in York County.

It’s the idea of putting those little electric candles in the front windows of your house.


I guess I thought everyone did that, but my out-of-region family members assure me that it’s much more popular around here.

Who knew? For my part, I’d love to have them, but I’m too lazy to go around and turn them on every night. Someone suggested timers, but I’m pretty sure I’m too lazy to even set them all up on timers. Isn’t that sad?

About Joan Concilio

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
