To the editor:
I was brought up to think littering is a bad thing, and I raised my children with that belief.
My husband and I just spent several hours filling trash bags with the confetti that landed in our son's yard on Prospect Street.
I didn't want them to return from their honeymoon to find red, green and white paper covering their flowers, vegetables, pots, walkways and driveway.
I'm disgusted. St. Peter wouldn't like all this trash in the ocean. Why is it OK to blanket downtown Gloucester in trash?
Can there be a more creative way to celebrate such a meaningful and family-oriented tradition without the litter?
