But they were stringing lights on big fir tree in front of Glen Ridge Borough Hall yesterday in preparation for the annual tree lighting and carol sing this Sunday, Dec. 2, at 4:30 pm.

Meanwhile, Montclair’s big tree lighting on Church Street is tomorrow (Friday Nov. 30) at 5 pm, and Bloomfield’s tree lighting is Monday Dec. 3, no time specified. Santa will be visiting Montclair shopping districts on Saturday.

And if you really want lights, to the tune of 55,000 of them…

…visit the Holiday Lights Spectacular over at the Turtle Back Zoo, 560 Northfield Ave., West Orange, open every night through December 31, 5 to 9 pm. Admission is $3/children and $5/adults. 973-731-5800.

    I promise you will not turn to stone if you say “Christmas Tree”.

    Ah yes, I’m waiting for the requisite, “Please don’t wish me Merry Christmas!” rants to begin. Any day now.

    How many of our towns have demonstrated their commitment to energy saving costs and sustainability practices?

    Nice that they are putting up a real tree, I thought the “Turf” folks may have wanted a fake tree.

    At least they are not cutting down the live tree thats there and putting up a fake tree like the “Turf” folks are ripping up live grass and put down fake grass

I’d love to take the family to see Robin Hood on stage and his attempts to help the 99%!
