OXFORD – The Oxford Holiday Committee has held two meetings making arrangements for this year’s Tree Lighting ceremony. The goal of this nonprofit committee is to encourage Oxford Village businesses to get ‘in the spirit’ of the season by “dressing” their establishments in their “holiday best,” and to decorate LaFayette Park’s Village Green for the holiday season. This has evolved into a spectacular “Festival of Lights”, which the Oxford community is very proud of.
Over the past couple of years, generous donations from the community have enabled the committee to purchase additional lighted sculptures, pre-lit garlands, replacement strings of lights (as are needed this year), wreaths and bows for all the Village light poles as well as a 12’ tall everlasting evergreen tree. The singing of, “Oh Tannenbaum” is the cue for the grand lighting of this tree, as well as the other sparkling displays.
