The Brookline Transportation Department reports on a reason for the season:
Enforcement of Brookline's Overnight Parking Ban has been waived for tonight and tomorrow night. Have a safe and enjoyable Christmas.
Enjoy the Christmas Truce while it lasts colonials!
A Jewish Christmas Miracle!
I cannot help but envisioning the "caddies welcome from 1 to 1:15" pool scene.
Never have a girlfriend who lives in Brookline.
Turkeys run amok, and cocks get blocked.
Merry Christmas, UH!
They are called Toms.
Ok, so they're being nice and allowing people's overnight guests to park.
But...if they do it for Christmas, shouldn't they do it for other religions as well?
NYC has 43 alternate-side parking holidays, including major Christian (Western and Eastern), Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Asian holidays.
They even relax the parking next to temples and churches on days of service.
So you're saying my Rosh Hashanah guests can park overnight in Brookline?
I searched their Twitter feed for "overnight", and the only non-Christian religious holiday with a waiver of the parking ban was Passover 2018. Except it coincided with Good Friday and Easter this year.
