Since that time, the celebration has gone all Hollywood on us - local groups perform, the trees are actually wrapped in lights, a huge evergreen in the center of it all, hot cocoa for anyone who would like it, and a crowd about fifteen times bigger than any crowd that gathered when we were there. We have not attended in a few years, but this year it was on a Monday night, it was mild, we were done with dinner at home in time to run over there, so we decided to skedaddle and take part.
There are always candles - for the singing of Silent Night - LM didn't take to holding fire too well. I guess I should be thankful for that. It is fun to be standing in the dark and see all those little candles lit all around you though!
This is about as long as he held it. Split second.
Lots of students were back where we were - we arrived too late to be up front.
And then the lights came on!
I was REALLY excited to have a photograph taken.
Yeah, nothing like when we were in school.
We've got a tree hugger!
A couple of shots as we walked away.
See you soon.
