It is appropriate that in a city known so much for its music that there was a lot of it at the official lighting of Metro Nashville’s Christmas tree. Choirs from Nashville School of the Arts, W.O. Smith School and West End United Methodist Church performed.
Mayor Megan Barry described how the thirty-four foot tall tree was donated by a family in Nashville’s Bellevue community. Vice Mayor David Briley, County Clerk Brenda Wynn and others spoke to a large crowd as Music City officially said, “Merry Christmas to all, 2016.”
Even the Metro Nashville Courthouse is lit in red and green during the season to celebrate.
For me and those who attended, it was a joyous evening. Living in Nashville is one of the many things for which I am grateful and I hope you are experiencing joy and gratitude wherever you may be.
