    Highlights from Hoboken Tree Lighting 2016

    Highlights from the 2016 Hoboken Christmas Tree Lighting

    The night began with a modest, but growing crowd of mostly families andsome commuters walking by who decided to stop. The host, Elvi, a self proclaim and rather large Elf from the North Pole, kicked off the night by introducing the first act and, of course, mentioning the various sponsors such as KIND Snacks and the Apple Montessori school who provided free hot chocolate. Upon hearing of the free coco, my assistant (aka my 6 year old son) quickly ditched his job of taking some video for a cup of hot chocolate and dancing. For me, the highlight was a student from Hoboken High School belting out song which the crowd loved, as you can hear from the cheers. That girl has got some pipes! There were a variety of other dancers, singing and, of course, after the lighting of the tree, Santa Clause arrived. He then toured Washington Blvd on a fire truck and when he returned, he spread some cheer to passersby including one of Hobokens local cosplay people and most importantly, my son. Good show Hoboken!

    Hoboken Holiday Spirit - Street Cleaner

    Yesterday, Dec 7th, while walking home from the Path I passed this gentleman who, presumably works for the city of Hoboken as a street cleaner. I noticed the Christmas decorations on his trash can and felt delight. I asked to take his picture. He agreed. What I love about this photo, this man, is his undaunted holiday spirit. It gave me a smile in these tumultuous times. So, I thought I would share. Enjoy. And, thank you sir. Happy Holidays.

    Hoboken Christmas Tree Lot - Silletti Brothers

    For more than 30 years, the Silletti Brothers (Mike and Vinny) have Christmas Trees, wreaths and assorted accessories for sale at Our Lady Of Grace Church on Willow between 4th and 5th.(The west end of Church Square Park). A portion of sales benefit the Church. And, if you need, the brothers also offer a delivery service so you don't have to haul that really big tree up five flights! Make your Christmas Merry and pick up a Christmas tree soon if you haven't already!

    The official tree lighting scheduled for today has been postponed due to a forecast of weather.  It has been rescheduled for Dec 14th 5-7pm. Details >>
