 Woodcarver extraordinaire Cima Bue created this flaming tribute to “A Christmas Carol” for last weekend’s “Dickens on the Delaware,” the town-wide wonderland in Callicoon, NY. “Yep, it will be all gone by the end of the night,” Cima said to passersby. That’s what makes it ephemeral.

Now that December is upon us, there are scads of holiday-themed events happening throughout the Upper Delaware River region.
