On Sunday afternoon (December 4, 2011) from 2 to 4 PM Carlsbadistan celebrated the 27th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at the Village Faire Mall at the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive and Carlsbad Blvd.

Carlsbad Rotarians handed out cookies, Santa got kids Christmas wishes and the crowd of nearly 300 enjoyed songs from Carlsbad High School’s Christmas Caroling Choir, dancing from Carlsbad High School’s Xcalibur dancers and performance from the local youth theater. It was the perfect way to kick off another holiday season in Carlsbadistan.

Sometimes it seems like the CHS dancers just float across the parking lot.

When Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall says “Let there be light.” You can bet the tree gets lit. But he was much nicer about it than he looks in this photo. Trust us. . .
