The Annual Biltmore Tree Lighting Ceremony

I took a break from studying with the boyfriend and my friend Kim to go to the Biltmore tree lighting. It's a really cute event with food, drink, some sort of entertainment, and then (of course) the countdown to the tree lighting! Lots of families actually bring their children, which are a rare sight in downtown, and they make the event even more adorable and wholesome. There were some change ups from last year. Some were great improvements (more food! and champagne was added!). But some things I didn't like as much as last year. (I miss the hand bell choir!) Overall, though, it's a really lovely way to spend an hour if you live downtown. It instantly puts you in the holiday spirit!
