Let's go watch the Pickle Drop! OK, I've seen the Times Square crystal ball drop on TV since I was a kid. A long long time ago. For years now Shippensburg has dropped an Anchor on the square. (Shippensburg = Ship, get it?). Last New Years eve we traveled to Chincoteague Island, Virginia to watch the Horseshoe drop. (Misty and the Chincoteague ponies) And there happens to be a beach nearby. This year was something different. We trekked to Dillsburg, Pa in northern York County to witness the famous Pickle Drop. (Dillsburg = Dill Pickle, get it) Well it's now dropped for the 24th time, so it's nothing new. And beside, raise your hand if you've ever seen a 6 foot pickle drop to the loud countdown from the crowd. I have. Happy New Year.
