One of the things I like the most about the Christmas season is the lights. After we do our “falling back” for Daylight Saving, the world becomes such a dark place. It’s wonderful that we have an opportunity to light it back up for the holidays.
We try to do our part here at CENTURY 21 Sand County Services and put up a lighted tree and some battery-lit candles in the windows. But the Village of Siren really knows how to light up your life! The Siren Lions do a fantastic job of lighting up the Crooked Lake Park with their annual lighting display. It signifies the official kickoff to Christmas in the community. If you want to be a part of it, gather at the park on Saturday, November 28th at dusk. They’ll have hot chocolate and cookies and I’m guessing there may even be a few carols sung! That day is also “Small Business Saturday” and there will be all kinds of great holiday surprises throughout the local shops. So you can shop all day, be a part of lighting up Crooked Lake Park and then attend the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Burnett County Veteran’s Park at 5pm. What a wonderful life! – Wanda Boldon
