Virtual Tree Lighting
Saturday, December 5th
Starting at 7 PM
Join together online for a jolly good time, all from the comfort of your living room. Starting at 7 PM, tune into the Junction’s Facebook page or watch on YOUTUBE HERE as we light up the holidays with a West Seattle tradition – the lighting of the West Seattle Christmas tree! The program starts with an introduction from Santa himself (thanks Santa!), followed by the sweet voices of the Endolyne Children’s Choir. The children will bring you some holiday classics the entire family can sing along to, plus some new favorites from the archives. Listen in as Jack Menashe shares his thoughts, then watch the tree come to life! Settle in after the tree lighting as Santa reads children’s stories via Facebook Live and answers questions.

Gather your friends (online) for a fun shopping experience with your favorite merchants. The Junction video crew will be visiting local boutiques, shops, and some restaurants to showcase some of the best gift ideas brought to you by the owners of the stores. It’s can’t get much personal than that! You’ll be able to purchase the items that evening too. Your purchases will be wrapped and ready for either curbside-pick up or free delivery to your local West Seattle door. Brought to you by White Center Glassand Verity Credit Union.

We’re busy preparing a special Hometown Holiday for you this year and are working hard on an easily accessible music playlist you can use as a backdrop for all your winter holiday celebrations. We’d love to know what your favorite Holiday song is, and songs by local artists are definitely encouraged. You can email your song choices to firstname.lastname@example.org or watch for choices via the Junction social media requests.We can’t wait to hear your suggestions!
