If you live in Highland Village, TX, this is a welcome sight around the holiday season. The glorious 54-foot tall tree standing in the center of The Shops at Highland Village is bound to get even the most bah-humbug of Scrooges into the Spirit of Christmas.
Tuesday, December 3 is "Our Village Glows", an annual tree-lighting celebration kicking off the holiday season in Highland Village, organized by the Highland Village Women's Club. This family-friendly activity has been taking place for over 10 years and has something for everyone. Enjoy carolers, hot chocolate, cookie decorating, face painting and a chance to tell Santa what is the must-have gift of the year.
This is an event my kids and I have attended for several years and enjoy it every time. Festivities start at 6:30 and end around 8:30. Don't forget that stores will be open so keep things local and get some gifts crossed off your list at the same time!
