2020 Tree Lighting Ceremonies to See That Magic Moment

Decorating our Christmas tree as a family is one of our favorite holiday traditions. There’s something magical about watching our tree light up for the first time each year. Many local communities celebrate the start of the holiday season with a tree lighting ceremony. Some had already planned for a virtual ceremony this year, while others will be moving that direction due to the new COVID-19 mitigation plans. Cozy up and get in the holiday spirit while watching these trees light up. Don’t forget your hot cocoa!
