Sallisaw’s Christmas Lighting will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday on the lawn at Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library in downtown Sallisaw.
The purpose of Christmas lights, believed to have evolved hundreds of years ago in Germany, is seen by some to signify “the light of Jesus, the Light of the world.”
Others, perhaps of a younger generation, believe the Christmas lights are a signal that Santa should “Stop Here!”
Christmas music, courtesy of The Mix 105.1, and Santa Clause will both be at the holiday lighting ceremony on Thursday. Santa will visit with youngsters in the library gazebo, and everyone will be treated to hot chocolate and cookies.
Chamber officials said, “We invite kids of all ages to come join us at 6 p.m. as we light up the town with Christmas cheer! As soon as the lights go on, Santa will arrive on a fire truck to pay a visit to the kids and hear their Christmas gift wishes.”
