Can't believe this time of year is upon us again, but yet again, it's now the count down till christmas and this year I am in a very festive mood

Few questions...

In American cities when do they turn the lights on and do they do it like they do it over here in the UK when they have an offical day in each city where they officailly have a ceremony to turn the lights on??

Also what is the best big city at christmas??? Even I in a little town in the north of England think that our lights are good and we dont have much :/???

Also, post our pics of your city at christmas.

54 sleeps till christmas!!!

Beautiful CLEVELAND during the Christmas holiday season ... Our city centre is ablaze with "millions" of christmas lights adorning the trees and bushes in Public Square, in addition to lighting of the cities landmark skyscraper, the Terminal Tower and other prolific structures and monuments.
