Oh, Come All Ye Faithful . . . to a Very Rainy Macungie

Borough kicks off Christmas season with scaled-back tree-lighting ceremony caused by downpours.

Colored lights shown brightly through the raindrops that poured down Tuesday on the in Macungie during an abbreviated tree-lighting ceremoney to kick off the Christmas season.

The event was planned whether it rained or skies were clear and, well, it poured at times.  That meant bands canceled and only the hardy showed up to huddle under the train shelter to try to stay dry.

But a small group did arrive to honor the tradition.  The lights lit up, a short ceremony was held, refreshments were enjoyed and the Christmas season was under way in the borough.

The Flower Park will now be lit evenings through Christmas, and the borough next prepares for , a day-long celebration of the season throughout the borough on Dec. 10.

I'm glad that the tradition continues, and thanks to all the folks who dropped off cookies and the the Town Beautification Committee for the Hot Chocolate. Sorry I missed it this year, but I'm happy to see the town lit up for the Holidays!
