Holiday Magic

Nixon ushers in holiday season


The City of Nixon held its annual Christmas Tree Lighting festivities at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26, at the Gladyne Finch Pocket Park downtown.

The St. Joseph’s Catholic Church children’s choir performed a number of songs in both English and Spanish to set the mood. Mayor Dorothy Riojas gave an official city welcome and Pastor Rene Amaya gave his blessing while his wife, Erlinda, read a passage from scriptures.

Children had their photos made with Santa Claus and enjoyed cookies and hot cocoa as well before the tree was officially lit for the first time this year.
