Thanks to South Coast Plaza for hosting such a lovely tree lighting ceremony. What a wonderful family event.
The children from the Orange County High School of the Arts performed beautifully.
Thanks, too, to the Segerstroms for having the good taste to wait until after Thanksgiving to hold the event. Merry Christmas to all!
