This week we look back at Boston’s holiday traditions. The city is transformed during this season
with visual treats of Santa walking the streets, excited children, and fanciful decorations.
Among all of the shopping and hustle, warmheartedness permeates the city.
In this file photo, busy holiday shoppers are silhouetted in the late afternoon light
as they cross Washington Street outside the two big department stores, Filene’s and Jordan Marsh.
