As mentioned in our last  post, there is an illumination night in the village of gingerbread houses in Oak Bluffs.  Everyone decorates their houses with luminaries and other decorations.  Starting at around  7:00 pm, there is a community sing in the tabernacle.  T

Then, at 9:00 pm, at a given signal, everyone turns on their luminaries at the same time. This is a Vineyard tradition that everyone looks forward to.

The fun part is that everyone tries to out-decorate his neighbor.

    I’m hoping that sometime I’ll see a picture you took of the old stone building where my barbershop was…
