The Promenade Christmas Tree lighting will take place next Wednesday, December 19 at 5:30 p.m., at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade. Santa will be there, as will the Grace & Spiritus Chorale to lead the caroling. The tradition of a Promenade Christmas Tree goes back to before there was a Promenade–perhaps it was set up on or near the Penny Bridge–during the World War II years. It was started by the Brooklyn Heights Garden Club, which continues to pay and arrange for the tree.
