This post comes thanks to Lydie at Travel is More Fun with Kids. She did a great round-up of holiday tree lighting ceremonies and menorah lightings that I wanted to share. Please visit her blog for great write-ups of cultural activities to do with kids here and abroad.

From Lydie:
Share a magical moment with your children: the lighting of a Christmas Tree. It is magical whatever religion you believe in. Almost every city will have one ceremony so check your local newspaper to see when it will be happening in your city.

All the lighting ceremony also provide entertainment and appearances from Santa. If you click on the links, you will find all the details.
