Sleigh Rally

Technohubby and I have reached the deliciously indulgent age where we can actually just take off for a day-long date!  And today we did!  We went to the annual sleigh rally at Old Sturbridge Village.  Sleigh and horse owners are invited to participate in a good-natured competition for prizes in various categories.  There's even a category for the best Currier & Ives look, but it seemed that nearly all of them excelled at that.  Each driver steered their sleigh around the field several times and displayed them in the middle to the enthusiastic cheers and applause of the gathered crowd.  The sleigh bells jingled merrily.  The participants wore their warmest furs, for the temperatures were just in the 20's with quite a wind.  It was truly a glimpse into winter in a bygone era.  Enjoy!
