12 Signs You Grew Up Celebrating the Holidays in Rhode Island
1. Reindeer don’t sport antlers…
A famous blue bug does.
2. Santa doesn’t ride in a sleigh.
Instead, he ditches it for a fire truck (in Westerly), a dock (in Wickford Village) and a boat (in Newport).
3. We light the water on fire.
Because without snow, watching fire tenders is the next best thing.
4. Ham? Turkey? It’s fish for us.
And if it’s not at a restaurant in Fed Hill, it’s most definitely at Nona’s.
