THE BOSTON CHRISTMAS TREE
The Boston Christmas Tree is the City of Boston, Massachusetts’ official Christmas tree. A tree has been lit each year since 1941, and since 1971 it has been given to the people of Boston by the people of Nova Scotia in thanks for their assistance during the 1917 Halifax Explosion. The Boston Christmas Tree makes it’s way to our location the week before Thanksgiving & stays overnight at our location. The next day, the tree is transported to Boston Common where the tree is decorated and an initial tree lighting ceremony is commenced with all of Boston.
