Coming up tomorrow (11/29) is the 66th annual Tree Lighting on Boston Common. With Thanksgiving behind us, it's time to look ahead towards Christmas. But then again, stores have had Christmas stuff up since after Halloween.

The holiday decorations throughout Boston Common and The Public Garden, including the City's official Christmas tree, a 45- foot white spruce donated by Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Hamilton of Granville Center, Nova Scotia, will light up in sequence when Mayor Menino throws the switch with Santa Claus. The annual holiday display includes over 80 trees throughout Boston Common. The celebration on Boston Common will feature performers from Novembera Scotia and New England with WCVB TV- 5 providing live coverage of the festivities hosted by Mary Richardson and Anthony Everett.

There will be food, beverages, and live entertainment. Immediately following the Common tree lighting, Mayor Menino will join Back Bay residents at Arlington Street for the lighting of Commonwealth Avenue Mall.
