MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Scores of onlookers gathered in downtown Mount Kisco on Friday evening for the annual Christmas tree lighting, a hallmark of the holiday season in the village.

The ceremony, which was sponsored by the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce, took place in the plaza space between Village Hall and the Mount Kisco Public Library.

A group of carolers gathered at the entrance to sing. Carols ranged from "Jingle Bells," to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," to "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

Santa himself made an appearance, first by poking out of a second-floor window at Village Hall and shouting, "merry Christmas!" Moments later, Santa came out from the building's main entrance to join in the countdown to the tree lighting.

The tree lighting was the first of two holiday season ceremonies in the village. A menorah lighting is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6 at 5:30 p.m. It will also take place in front of Village Hall.
