What does your town do for Christmas??

Does your town/city/village have a Christmas tree lighting?
I think our's does. Since we're new we will have to figure out when it is, etc.
I do know we have this: http://www.acadianvillage.org/html/xmas2008.htm
I can't wait to check that out!
I'm also looking forward to going to the mall to see Santa and all the Christmas decorations! Also, I'm sure the different stores and shops will be decorated really nice for Christmas! There's just so much to look forward to!!!

We have a parade here every year...we also have carolers, few vendors etc. The stores stay open later so people can shop that night. We also have a day (like a Saturday afternoon I guess) where the local Movie Theater plays a Christmas movie for FREE for all the kids while the parents shop.

I live in a very large city, Chicago, and my favorite things that the city does for Christmas is the Christkindlmarket! http://www.christkindlmarket.com/ (there is a countdown until the market opens on the site!)

I also love visiting Macy*s (formerly Marshall Field's) to see the decorated windows and the Great Tree at the Walnut Room, inside the beautiful, historic store.... so much fun!
