Stargazers should mark the “best” meteor shower of the year, according to NASA, on their calendars — the Geminids, which can soon be seen.

The showers began Saturday, but will peak on the evening and dawn of Dec. 13-14, according to earthsky.org. They end on Dec. 17.

If it’s dark, you could see as many as 50 flaming meteors cross the sky per hour, with the most around 2 a.m.

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton-on-Hudson: our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship -- in short, EVERYTHING CROTON. 

 The Croton Seniors celebrated their Christmas holiday party at the Harmon firehouse on Friday the 3rd. It was well attended with 60 members and guests. The event was catered by World of Food and everyone had more than enough to eat and the meal was topped off with a cake supplied by the village. Mayor Pugh and village manager, Bryan Healey attended with staff as well.  Click on the photo to see former Deputy Mayor Bob Anderson and Ellen---the gang enjoyed having a somalier!

Music was provided by DJ, John Hanna who had a great, festive music mix. John McGuire and Al Cobran manned the 50/50 raffle table. There are many stories to tell about the visit by Santa and all who sat on his lap and received gifts. Rumor has it that Bill Tuttle had something to do with the Santa visit. The party committee comprised of Eileen O'Leary, Rose Kollar, Linda Pothast, and Linda McShane did a tremendous amount of work to make this a great party. Special thanks to Chief Vlad and his team at the firehouse to make us all welcome.

IN THE NEWS: 6TH CIRCUIT COURT RULES AGAINST BIDEN ADMIN IN OSHA VACCINE MANDATE LAWSUIT

The Sixth Circuit Court has denied the federal government’s motion to transfer the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine-or-test requirement lawsuit to a different court, while also rejecting the White House’s bid to dissolve a stay on the mandate, delivering a blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to press ahead with implementation. In a Dec. 3 ruling, the Sixth Circuit Court denied the government’s motion to transfer the case to the Fifth Circuit and the D.C.

IT'S "REPEAL DAY"! AND NOW SOME VINTAGE CROTON BOOTLEGGING HISTORY

In honor of REPEAL DAY......a little Croton bootlegging history.  
 
For those who don't know. Repeal Day celebrates the day that brought the Twenty-first Amendment into effect, after the final state needed to ratify it did so. The amendment repealed the Eighteenth Amendment, which had prohibited the production, transportation, and sale of alcohol. As such, December 5 has long since been known as "repeal day".
