ears ago when I moved to Milltown, I remember hearing the fire engine roaring through town. After about 10 minutes I really began to worry that something really serious was afoot. As the sound grew closer I ran to my window. To my surprise, it was Santa Claus on his big red fire truck, throwing candy canes and broadcasting holiday tunes from his perch! I thought to myself. Wow! What a town! He had a bright spot light shining on him that made the scene all the more magical as he was driven through town, giving every girl and boy the chance to see jolly ole Santa.
Christmas is definitely in the air and taking the kids into New York City to visit the tree sounds amazing this time of year. The bitter cold weather challenges that spirit, however, when you have small children to consider. Luckily, Milltown has its very own tree lighting at Borough Hall on Friday, December 5 at 6:00 pm. This includes a visit from Santa Claus and 7:00 pm. There will be hot chocolate and carols will be sung. It’s a fun time for family and a great chance for the kids to see their friends from school. It’s a great time to visit and feel the family spirit, that is ever present, in this great, all-American, small town!
