                  Colonial Williamsburg tree lighting ceremony brings tradition and spectacle to holiday

                  Few events are as quintessentially Christmas as a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a ceremony that combines the region’s colonial character with a dazzling display better than the 59th annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony held by Colonial Williamsburg and the...

                                  By all indications, my recent column about the Colonel Alfred Redl Affair, the espionage tale that rocked the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, “hit the spot.” So many of my readers wanted to know how and when did I learn about Egon Ervin Kish’s exploits, and about how he broke the story as a young reporter....
