Nova Scotia Holiday Tree: On December 6, 1917, a munitions ship exploded in Halifax Harbor, off the coast of Nova Scotia. Upwards of 2,000 people were killed by debris, fires, or collapsed buildings and an estimated 9,000 more were injured. By 10pm that night, a train loaded with supplies and emergency personnel was chugging through wintry terrain, on its way from Boston to Nova Scotia. It was a kind gesture in a time of need that the people of Nova Scotia have never forgotten. And since 1971 -- in continued thanks to the City of Boston -- Nova Scotia has donated a majestic balsam fir, white spruce or red spruce, to be Boston’s official Holiday tree. The tree selection has become quite the tradition in Nova Scotia and with me now tell us all about it is Nova Scotia’s Deputy Premier Frank Corbett, and Gary and Roseann Misner, whose 35 foot spruce was selected to be this year’s tree. They are all in town for the official tree lighting which takes place tonight on Boston Common.
