Dear Long Islander,

This weekend, November comes to an end, and we enter December - which is quite arguably the most festive, and anticipated month of the year for many. With many getting a head start on Holiday Shopping this year, it seems that the Season is already in full swing - homes are being decorated, trees are being lit, and Long Island is already enjoying the holiday spirit. This weekend, there are countless tree lighting ceremonies, holiday craft shows, and the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County's Holiday Light Show begins! Over the next few weeks, there is all sorts of seasonal excitement, including the Nutcracker Ballet, Menorah Lighting Ceremonies, and all sorts of indoor & outdoor experiences celebrating the season of giving. The forecast is looking good for the next week or so, so get out there, and enjoy the season, Long Island!

Hot Off the Presses
Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremonies Happening on Long Island This Week
Tis the Season to Enjoy Holiday Splendor!
The official start of the holiday season is when Santa Claus stopped in Herald Square at the end of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This week the tree in Rockefeller Center will be lit.  You can save a trip into the city by watching it on television.  Or stay local as nearly every town on Long Island  has its own special tree-lighting tradition.  We even have a tree that is next to an ice-skating rink. Get into the spirit of the season with your neighbors at these events.  Some towns offer free hot chocolate with musical performances and joyous caroling.  Others offer a special appearance of Santa Claus and reading of “'Twas the Night Before Christmas”.  Don't forget to bring your camera.  Many are also accepting new toy donations - give back this season as you enjoy the Holiday Magic!
