Name That Christmas Song Quiz (With A Hallmark Movie Twist!)

Christmas Music Sets The Tone In Hallmark Movies Just hear those sleigh bells ringing, ring-ting-tingling too..... the music plays as the opening credits to another Hallmark Christmas movie cascade across the TV screen.  The music puts us in a holly jolly mood before the first scene unfolds. Sleigh Ride is still playing in your head right now.

How Does An Actual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony Compare to Hallmark's?

I talked my family into joining me for our city's annual Christmas tree lighting.  Although we've called our city home for nearly 14 years, we've never attended the event. When we first arrived, I felt like I was on the set of a Hallmark movie.  I was giddy! There were carriage rides, a scavenger hunt, cookies, hot chocolate, and a children's choir singing carols.  A costumed character meandered through the crowd, pausing for pictures with kids brave enough to stand with him and hold a sign. A local radio celebrity helped lead the event until passing the microphone off to the mayor, who commended the city council and event organizers for their efforts before calling all the children to gather in front of the tree and lead the countdown. Seeing not only the tree, but the entire street and city commons area surge to life was spectacular!  If you joined all the light strands together, they would stretch for seven miles!  No wonder there was such a loud cheer
