Nain's Community Christmas Tree has Arrived

It’s beginning to feel a little more like Christmas in Nain.

There’s a fresh coat of snow on the ground and the community’s Christmas tree has arrived.

Isabella Pain is a member of the Ulapitsaijet Committee.

The committee was the group who arranged the purchase of the new tree.

Pain says the tree has finally arrived after travelling halfway around the country.

The lighting ceremony is scheduled to take place at 6:30 this evening.

The ceremony will take place at the Nunatsiavut Government office where the 20-foot artificial tree has been erected.

The Nain Moravian Church Choir will be on hand to help with ceremonies.

Paine says they are also hoping to get the JHMS school band involved as well.

She says you can be sure to expect the singing of Napatule during the ceremony.

Nain residents are also invited to stick around after the ceremony for Timbits and hot chocolate.
