The Christmas season is always enjoyable for the traditions and excitement that seems to draw everyone into the joy and unique feeling of these holidays. The annual tree lighting downtown is one of those fun and exciting events. Though not quite as large as the tree at Rockefeller center, ours is attractive and of good size. A nice crowd of about 100 to 150 folks gathered for the event including many kids that were likely thinking of Christmas gift giving just around the corner. The event included some local musicians followed by the traditional count down from ten before the lights were turned on. We are looking forward to the upcoming holidays and our Christmas special where Deborah prepares a wonderful Christmas buffet.
