Sneaking out of work early today to take Aurora downtown to see Santa.
Old Fashioned Village Christmas
Santa and his horse drawn carriage, elves, village carolers, chior performances, Holiday cheer, and Super Sale Specials all over the village!
Don’t miss this fabulous family event. It’s the kick off to the holiday shopping season. Our downtown shops will be open each Friday night in December, and many on Sunday too!!
I’ll try to take a lot of pictures and put them up on the site for you this weekend. If you see a tall guy with a pony tail pushing a baby stroller, be sure to say hi!
It’s things like this that make Babylon Village a special family place…enjoy and look forward to seeing the pics!
Great weather for the shopping night…nice turnout. Don’t forget the tree lighting at Argyle Park 4pm Sunday.
Looks like snow tomorrow, so I might skip it.
Tree Lighting today 4pm…sunny but cold. Santa will be there with candy canes.
If you need to warm up, the Boy Scouts are running their annual spaghetti dinner at the High School.
Giants on at 4 today, Blog. Although maybe I could ask Santa for a decent linebacker.
I could possibly take the baby to the tree lighting, although she cried when she met Santa on Friday. I can’t blame her, it was ridiculously crowded, she’s way down by everyone’s knees in the stroller, can’t see anything of what’s going on, then suddenly her daddy hands her to some strange man with a long beard while her mommy is taking pictures instead of rescuing her. Crying seems very sensible to me in that situation.
The best picture have of my sister with a “Mall Santa” she is crying her eyes out!!!! And that was in the 60’s!!!

I’m really happy that Gary and Deb had a good time bringing their daughter to see Santa for the first time – the crying is a rite of passage.
Special… yep. You must be right — I’ve never seen Santa anyplace outside “The Village” (contrary evidence notwithstanding). Plus, my 4 year-old bawled her eyes out when I told her that Santa doesn’t bring presents to kids who live in rented houses – so I guess I have to go broke buying… for the children.
