Another favorite holiday tradition is the tree lighting at the MAC. Just gets you in the mood. They have carolers, decorations, temporary tatoos- festive right?- and hot chocolate for the kids and wine for the adults. They have Santa -- who is AWESOME - and he is pulled in a horse drawn carriage. They had a balloon person there making candy canes and reindeer for the kids....Frances asked for a lion...I told her it had to be holiday themed....she then asked for Jesus.....the look on his face...priceless.... She got a Santa hat with a blue beard (her request) and Maggie got a present.
