Today was the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in my neighborhood. Sarah, Micah, and I got all bundled up and met our friend at the plaza to gather with other families and folks from the area. After a quick announcement from the alderman, they lit up the tree and a children’s choir sang some songs.
