It's that favorite time of year where hot chocolate, hot apple cider, garland and brightly decorated trees are the talk of the town.  It's Christmas time!! This time of year is so anticipated that we even have a Thanksgiving parade in which the star of the show is Santa Claus! 

Yet in still, one of the most anticipated times of this season, Santa aside, is the tradition of seeing the Christmas tree light up for the first time.  All around the Triangle this evening and tomorrow you can take part of your towns tree lighting event!
