ears ago when I moved to Milltown, I remember hearing the fire engine roaring through town. After about 10 minutes I 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 a big red fire truck, throwing candy canes and broadcasting holiday tunes from his perch! I thought to myself, “Wow! What a town!” There was a bright spotlight shining on the top that made the scene all the more magical as the fire truck drove 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 every year. This includes a visit from Santa Claus, hot chocolate and singing carols. It’s a fun time and a great chance for the kids to see their friends from school. It’s a wonderful time to visit and feel the family spirit that is ever present in this great, all-American small town!
