I don't know about you, but my favorite part of the Christmas season is the fact that there's light everywhere.

The lights aren't just pretty things to look at. They bring people together and reflect the warmth that's in all our hearts this time of year. (Or stir that warmth in a Grinch or two.)

There have been so many great tree lighting events across Central Texas, and now we can enjoy one more at McLane Children's Medical Center in Temple Tuesday evening.

From 6 PM to 8 PM December 10, you can snack on free cookies and hot cocoa, get in on some free Christmas crafts, and get a photo with the Big Man himself, Santa Claus.

The tree will be lit and there'll be caroling. It's going to be Christmasy to the max, folks.

Not only is this a great chance to make some holiday memories with your family, but imagine how great it must be for the patients to see those lights and hear folks singing Christmas carols.

Again, the annual Christmas tree lighting at McLane Children's Medical Center in Temple happens Tuesday, December 10 from 6-8 PM, and it's free. The hospital is located at 1901 SW H K Dodgen Loop.
