The City of Twinsburg and Twinsburg Township held their first ever Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony over the weekend. It was a great event that started at the Twinsburg Government Center and then proceeded down Ravenna Road to Twinsburg Township Square.
The event was hosted by Louie the Elf and his cast of characters. They encouraged the attendees to wear “elf attire” and asked them to accessorize it with lights and other items. When you arrived they provide glow necklaces.
After the Government Center was lit up the crowd marked down Ravenna Road to Twinsburg Township Square to light up a huge Christmas Tree. When we arrived there they had set up food stands and were handing out snacks.
At the square they had the Ohio Burn Unit Performing. They brought a spectacular show of fire.
After the tree was lit there was another surprise when fireworks were set off. None expected this and I did not see it in any of the advance literature for the night.
Some of the photos I took are below and you can visit all of my photos on my Photography Site.
This is a photo of the snack the family left for Santa Claus. When we got up in the morning part of the milk was gone and 2 of the cookies were also missing! Santa must have been hungry!

Our kids started writing a letter to Santa Claus and I captured this photo while they were thinking about what to write.
Have a very Merry Christmas!

I found these Christmas Lights at Burton Drive & Merino Lane in Twinsburg, Ohio. I posted the photo to Facebook and got some tips on the story behind them. I found out that they taking donations to support the Emergency Assistance Center of Northfield. They have a box at the end of driveway to put your donations in. According to s Twinsburg Bulletin Article last year they raised $270 and 260 pounds of food.
The display consists of approx 45000 lights, mostly LEDs. The photo you see above does not show the lights along the side of the house, the display goes around the corner. The display is on from 5:45 PM to 11:00 PM every day through the first week of January.
Tonight I took a trip over the Silverdale Lights. The lights were great and not overdone, the lights were set up to go along with the music. There are over 50,000 lights.
The official charity of the Silverdale Lights is the Officer Joshua T Miktarian Memorial Scholarship Fund. They are collecting donations at the lights or on the website. I have written about Officer Miktarian on this blog before, click to search.
