Tree Lighting Ceremonies

Uploaded: Nov 21, 2020
?On Friday night we enjoyed watching Palo Alto’s virtual tree lighting ceremony. It was a very simple ceremony, but it was so wonderful to hear Christmas music again. We decided that this year would be a great opportunity to check out other virtual tree lighting ceremonies.

Today we watched Millennium Park’s Tree Lighting Ceremony in Chicago. Our kids usually spend Christmas in Chicago with relatives so this ceremony was a nice way to feel a little more connected with the city. The tree was beautiful and we enjoyed seeing all of the hard work that went into cutting it down, transporting it and decorating it.

We are also planning to watch the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony in December. But so far we have greatly enjoyed seeing the tree being delivered to Rockefeller Center and hearing all about the little owl that was rescued.

What virtual tree lighting ceremonies will your family enjoy this holiday season?
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
