Yesterday was the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the NEX. It was about an hour and a half and included various singing, dance, cheer and band performances by the local children. I only managed to snag a few pics and completely forgot to take a picture of the actual Christmas Tree!
The event started with the arrival of Santa via a decorated golf cart and then sat on his chair to observe all the festivities.
A couple of our cuties sang with the Chapel Youth Choir. Notice Tori is the only girl not wearing a dress? Well, for some strange reason, she didn't want to wear a beautiful dress yesterday. For anyone who knows her, they would know that this behavior is completely anti-Tori. Usually for her, everyday is princess day and she jumps at the chance to get dressed up. Oh well.
I think my favorite part of the day was the sense of community. For events like this, much of the community shows up. It's the thing to do. Guantanamo Bay is sometimes referred to as "The World's Largest Gated Community" and I'd say that is a pretty accurate description.
