Living in the Capital City of Michigan means we get to host the official state Christmas Tree! There is a huge celebration called Silver Bells in the City on the Friday before Thanksgiving. About 100,000 people gather for a parade and the lighting. I've attended for most of the 27 years it has been held. Finally gave it up intentionally this year. But oh the memories.About ten family members were there, so I got a great report. Maybe next year . . .
