The city had its annual Christmas Tree lighting in Pasadena last night.
I’ve attended several of these official city lightings over these many years. Here are a handful of shots from this years event…
I arrived after the 5:30 starting time. Late. But fortunately the tree had not yet been lit. The children’s choir was singing Christmas carols. Observers included Mayor Bogaard on the left and state Senator Carol Liu on the right.
A city parks & recreation representative then took the microphone to say a few words about the holidays. Maybe my ears were full of wax but I didn’t discern “Christmas” as one of the words he used.
The PIO was in full control of the situation as usual and the city Christmas Tree was lit up. And she looked the best I’ve ever seen her at this event, imho! Those doctors really did a beautiful job on her.
I’m not much into the Christmas spirit this year and I got that same sense from the people gathered here last night. Didn’t feel or see the “buzz” from the other Christmas lightings I’ve attended.
I’m disappointed with the technical quality of these photos relative to past Christmas lightings. Maybe I need to buy a new camera.
Gotta Rest. Stay Thirsty My Friends
