Tree Lighting and Holiday Extravaganza Takes Place Friday

Editor’s Note: The following was written and submitted by the Chamber of Commerce of the Bellmores.

The community is cordially invited to celebrate the start of the holiday Season as the Chamber of Commerce of the Bellmores presents the 16th annual Christmas tree lighting and holiday extravaganza.

The festivities will commence on Friday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. The evening promises to be filled with old fashioned spirit and charm. There will be horse and carriage rides up and down Bedford Avenue. An old time trolley will also travel the neighboring streets to see the beautifully decorated homes.

Get news your way on Bellmore Patch. See our great list of groups and click the green “+ Follow” button on the ones you like. Done!

The tree lighting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial located at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Broadway.

The warmth and joy of the season will be in abundance with an old fashioned atmosphere. Hot chocolate, hot apple cider, hot pretzels and other goodies will be available. There will be plenty of Christmas Carols provided by our local schools and organizations. Santa will be about and will welcome the little ones with their wishes for Christmas morning.

The Chamber invites friends and neighbors of all faiths to join in this delightful celebration. For additional information, please call our Chamber office at 516-679-1875.

"Happy Holidays" don't bother me because you are saying all from HappyThanksgiving to Happy New Year's. But would you call the Menorah Candles just "Candles". I bet you not. Every place I have ever gone to (including the city: "Rockerfeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting"). It was not call a tree. Or at other ceromonies" "Christmas Tree and Menorah Lighting". Other than that it really don't bother me. Because I take it from where it comes from. Selfish and disrespectful people.

I'm amazed at all this. The Bellmore I live in is filled with wonderful people that celebrate all different holidays. I would explain how they all are actually plagerized off pagan holidays and the Christians adapted the tree from the pagan winter celebration to convert them.... But I'll just leave or there. I don't want M. Murphy to have heart failure. Lol. Happy Holidays to everyone !!

You tried to hide behind an intellectually dishonest premise of just wanting to thank the chamber...How's that 'Just Wanting to Thank the Chamber' explanation working for you now???.......EXPOSED, weren't you!!!...I knew your thought process must've come from some deep-seeded abnormal psychosis...Plagerized off pagan holidays???...Are you kidding me???...How would YOU know how many wonderful people there are in the Bellmores???...I pegged you right from the start...Now go back to '6 days ago' and re-read my characterization...SPOT ON!!!....Not very popular, are you???...I'm on my way out to buy yet another thumb-tack board for the incredible amount of Xmas cards I've already recieved...How 'bout you??? .

You are such a troubled soul... I feel pity for people like you.

M. Murphy. I commend your efforts. You disproved each of her sentences. But she doesn't feel wrong and she's not going to. Nothing is going to change anyone's mind during an internet comments argument. M obviously feels correct and so does Eileen. M, enjoy the new fish in your barrel. Eileen, don't call M a troubled soul (not for you to decide) and try not to feel pity on M. And M, I've see you tell people on other articles to choose their battles more wisely. Maybe you should take your own advice and see that this is a waste of your and Eileen's time. You made your point, she made hers. I made one a while ago, then kind of gave up because you seemed too excited to deal with. One would expect the comments section to be a healthy exchange of views on an article, but that's not the case. Now that the Christmas tree is lit, we can all just focus on the real matter at hand. Why is the photo of a young woman dressed as Santa? That's not a Christmas tree at all!
