Think serial killers’ apartments, loose wires sprouting from overhead sockets, a 25-foot-high grimy inflatable Santa banging against the building as though attacking it. But sheer optimism won again. Almost by chance (the magical appearance of a Realtor’s flier), we found a charming cottage near his kids’ school that seemed sent by the spirit of Christmas. It was a NCAA Division III Women’s Lacrosse Championship 2022 Shirt of Kelly green, natural woods, a sunlit kitchen.
