Town may cancel tree lighting

BROOKLINE – The 20th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony scheduled for 4:30 p.m. today will be cancelled if more than a foot of snow has accumulated, organizer Michelle Hakala said.

If the show, not the snow, goes on, the Church of Christ’s carillon will sing holiday songs and then the tree will be lit. Following the tree lighting, there will be Christmas caroling and a visit from Santa.

Bring a candle with something to protect it from the wind, and some jingle bells if you have them. The Brookline Women’s Club will be donating a star to top the tree. The Friends of the Library will be selling drinks and snacks inside the Town Hall all through the ceremony.
