I will meet your eyes. The harbor. Within 24 hours of the disaster, a train carrying supplies and rescuers was heading from Boston to Nova Scotia.
“We are delighted that residents and visitors of all ages will return to Boston Common after last year’s virtual celebration because of this very special tradition,” said Mayor Michelle Wu. “I am grateful for the opportunity to be with the community when lighting trees to start the holiday season. We, the city, give Nova Scotia this wonderful tree gift that Boston citizens have enjoyed for half a century. I am grateful.”

Boston’s official 2021 Christmas tree is a 60-year-old, 48-foot white spruce tree in Orangedale, the municipality of Invanes County, Cape Breton Island. This tree was donated by the landowner’s Larsh Cape Breton community. This community is a non-profit organization that creates safe, supportive homes and meaningful work for people with disabilities.
When Mayor Wu joins the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman on stage, the holiday lights in both parks will turn on in turn just before 8 pm. The show concludes with an exhibition of fireworks by Atlas PyroVision.
