This week was the scheduled lighting of the Christmas tree at the large shopping area near our home, Holly Springs Towne Center. They had a light-up Christmas tree, bounce houses, face painting and Cinder, the fire prevention dog. There were vendors on hand to talk about their businesses and the Mayor was scheduled to light the Christmas tree. Unfortunately, the Mayor had a family emergency and didn’t make it, so the Fire Prevention Officer and Santa Claus lit the tree instead.
We went up there for a bit to check it out and let Brian meet Santa. They had a snow machine, which was pretty neat too. Brian got to practice catching snowflakes and he told Santa what he wanted for Christmas. He later advised us that he wanted to huge Christmas tree Santa had just lit, which he won’t be getting.
