Lighting the tree

Downey Christmas Tree Lighting

Tonight was the annual lighting of the Christmas tree at the Downey Civic Center.

Downey Christmas Tree LightingThis year was a little different. Usually, one of the living trees near the library is decorated. (See Star of wonder for a picture of last year's tree.) But this year, there was a traditional Christmas tree, decorated in lots of beautiful traditional Christmas decorations.

After some entertainment from local kids' groups, which I'll show you more of tomorrow, the entire crowd counted down, "Ten! Nine!...Three! Two! One!", and the lights went on!
