Continuing a tradition started in 1922, an old fashioned Christmas tree lighting and visit with Santa was held in the New Oxford circle on Saturday, November 28, 2015. Free hot chocolate and cookies were provided, as the crowd sang Christmas carols and waited for Santa to arrive. When he did, the crowd cheered and children lined up patiently for their turn to sit with Santa in his sleigh. Visit our photos page to see the awe and wonderment of the children as they spoke with Santa. The New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to sponsor this event every year. Always held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, next year’s old fashioned Christmas Tree lighting will be held on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 5 p.m.
