The Westchester Square Business Improvement District held their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Gift Distribution on Friday, December 6. The holiday event began with the official tree lighting, followed by an appearance by Santa Claus and his elves, who greeted families and distributed free gifts to the children in attendance. The event, which was sponsored by the Westchester Square BID and Councilman Mark Gjonaj, also featured Christmas carolers, traditional holiday music and hot chocolate.
