If you are ever in New York in the month of December you have to go see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller center. It is huge! There is a great big tree lighting ceremony and people come from all over to see it lit for the first time.
The Christmas tree usually stands on average about 70 feet...once once reaching 100 feet.
So... not to be out done...in our little neck of the woods our town has its own version of a great tree lighting ceremony. A few years back they started off by planting a tree a bit smaller than the one in Rockefeller Center... I think it was a bit shy of 70 feet...OK it was about 10 feet high but the Fire department came and so did Santa.
Santa was like a Rock Star instantly
surrounded by Children wanting to meet him!
Hot chocolate was given out and there was music galore. This year it was no different except the initial crowd (a few years back of just about 30 or 40) has grown significantly. This year the tree looked to be about 12 feet (its growing nicely) Santa came by firetruck as usual but was also accompanied by some of the prettiest horses you have ever seen!
This guy stole my heart
So Maybe it's not Rockefeller Center With it's multitudes of happy tourists and famous ice skating rink, but it suits us just fine
