And so it begins.... the Festival of Lights in New Milford, CT will be Saturday, November 24 at 5:30 pm. For the 46th year, the New Milford Green will be adorned with trees running the entire length of the green for the holiday season. Come and be a part of the tree lighting ceremony.

Festival of Lights New Milford CTThe festivities include a visit from Santa, Christmas karaoke sing along and a parade of lights courtesy our volunteer fire departments as well as the lighting of the trees.

The trees on the New Milford Green are a big part of my holiday season and have been for many, many years. As we drove up the green yesterday afternoon and saw the United Methodist Men's Group putting up the trees my daughter reminded me of our ritual when my girls were young. We would pile into the car with "Gramma Z" and drive around and around singing our favorite Christmas songs. We would park and marvel at the magic of the scene in front of us. I hope we can continue the family tradition with my grandsons!

Come and make your own tradition, I hope to see you there!


And a big thank you to the United Methodist Men for undertaking this tradition for the town year after year. I hope you know how much it is appreciated, and how deeply ingrained it has become as a special holiday memory for so many people. The Christmas season really starts for me when those trees are lit on our beautiful town green. The center of our town becomes alive with a magical feeling.

Andrea, each year as Christmas approaches I say the same thing; "where has the time gone". Never used to zip by so fast when I was younger :) Your town of New Milford CT sounds like a wonderful place to be during Christmas and a great place for your memories.  I just love Christmas memories.
