Tree lighting
The official tree for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony comes to life with strings of blue and white lights just outside of the Patriot Club on Dec. 3, Offutt Air Force Base, Neb. Lines of people wait their turn to enter the club. The ceremony hosts a full buffet, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, numerous vendors, distinguished visitors, live music and endless hot chocolate and sweets.
