We had our annual Lighting of the Christmas Tree in Brittas Village on Sunday 3rd December 2017. It started at 5pm in the school yard of St Martin's National School. All the kids were given LED lanterns and then everybody walked from the school to the tree in Brittas Village, singing Christmas carols all the way. Both sides of the route were lined with candle lit lanterns which looked amazing in the dark.
Then we did the 10 second countdown, the big switch was flipped (by Betty Keogh) and everybody cheered. After a few more songs, it was then into the Community Centre for hot chocolate, treats and refreshments. The hall was absolutely packed, so much so that half the kids went outside and played in the community centre gardens. It really felt like the start of the Christmas celebrations and the countdown to Christmas Day had begun,
Thanks to everyone who attended and made it a very special occasion. Also big thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. There's so much work that goes on behind the scenes to bring it all together and make it such an enjoyable event.
