This is my first holiday season in Charlotte, is the tree lighting festival worth attending? Does anyone know what to expect?

It's really magical if you have kiddos. For adults, it's festive, but nothing spectacular to write home about.

Christmas in Davidson is next weekend! Be sure to attend l! Truly amazing!

I’ve lived here my entire life and didn’t know we have a central tree lighting ceremony in the city. Where is this? I know different neighborhoods have tree lightings - like one at the panthers stadium or most recently at piedmont row.

Hello! Yes! It is fun especially when you're with your family or loved ones. Enjoy!

Its so great! I would highly recommend it. I take my family every single year and it never gets old.

Happy July 4th everyone! Am 35 M and feel so lonely this weekend. Have been holed up and just can’t stop crying last few days.

Any suggestions or help please? Another holiday alone will be too much to bear. These covid months have really put me in depression.

I start a new job in 2 weeks (woohoo!) & I completely forgot to mention to my manager that I have three short pre planned vacations this fall (two long weekends and a week long). I was waiting on confirmations from other folks (all of these will be with friends/fam), which is why I forgot. I’m worried that if I share this with her now, she will already think poorly of me and that I’m trying to get away with abusing the benefits (unlimited PTO). Any advice? Am I thinking too deep into this?
