Finding New Thanksgiving Traditions
There used to be a time when the mall was filled with lots of lines of people waiting for that Black Friday deal. Now, there seem to be those looking for new Thanksgiving traditions.
From early afternoon, hundreds of folks of all ages traveled to the Empire State Plaza to kick off the holiday season with the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Eventgoers were able to warm up with some hot chocolate and cider donuts while also getting a chance to do some ice skating. but of course, it was clear that everyone was here for one reason- Christmas tree lighting and the great display of fireworks that went along with the lights and holiday music.
