Cue the music: Santa Claus came to town!

The sound of people shouting "Merry Christmas" filled most of the air at Tabernacle's Town Hall as the Christmas Tree was formally lit on Dec. 6.

Tabernacle lit their Christmas tree at town hall, signifying their official start to the holiday season (despite many of the shopping holidays coming and going).

Attendees at the ceremony listened to the sounds of various choirs — including the Tabernacle Volunteer Fire Company; free treats, coffee and cider; and were paid a visit by the most famous couple: Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
