Tonight the Obamas presided over the National tree lighting ceremony in Washington D.C.
Here’s how we did it, Oaktown style….
And if this doesn’t get you in the mood, I don’t know what will.
There were elves performing magic tricks that astounded!
Free hot refreshments to warm us from the insides… including hot chocolate, spiced cider, churros, and real roasted chestnuts! That’s pretty darn festive.
The Oakland Jazz Workshop performed some lively numbers, especially with the accompaniment of this young talent… the girl had some pipes. And she was only ten! (And ten months).
Of course, Santa was there!
The Golden Gate Boys Choir and Bell Ringers performed a number of holiday carols… pretty impressive.
And after the lighting of the tree, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir came out to really kick things into high gear. Fantastic. And if you missed this performance, you can catch them this Saturday night, December 5th at the lovely Paramount Theatre, 7:30pm.
You feelin’ it yet?
