    Annual Tree Send Off Celebration

    The bond between Nova Scotians and New Englanders is a strong one and the connection between Boston and Halifax is particularly strong. In December of 1917, a munitions ship collided with another ship in Halifax Harbor, creating an explosion that killed nearly 2000 people and leveled part of Halifax. Boston immediately sent much-needed medical personal and supplies. In recognition of that kind assistance, the Province of Nova Scotia sends a Christmas tree to the City of Boston annually.
