‘Tis that time of year for holiday cheer, holiday tree lightings, caroling, and all that other holiday stuff. Hopefully we’ll get a little snow this year so the kids can go out and make snow Angels on Christmas morning unlike last year.
There are a host of activities going on right here in Valley Stream and neighboring villages beginning Friday. Who needs to head to Rockefeller Center for the countries 2nd most excited tree lighting aside from the White House lighting?

One of my blog followers attended this event last year and couldn’t thank me enough for letting her know about this. I think I’ll try and take the kids this year as well.
I took my kids to this event last year to educate them a but on the Jewish culture. My daughter’s Kindergarten class was learning about various holiday traditions so it was a perfect fit. Get there on time because the party moves fast. Last year they had a fabulous magician. They has snacks too which we kinda missed.
