USS Constitution Christmas Tree Lighting

I was down in the Charlestown Navy Yard for Old Ironsides Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony.  Santa visited and with the help of one lucky child flipped the switch to illuminate a tree donated by Mahoney's and decorated by loads of children.

Boy Scout Troop #511 of Burlington,MA were aboard to participate and help out.

Directly after evening colors, Santa came aboard to the cheers of everyone present.  After the tree was lit there were cookies and cocoa for everyone.

I was hanging with my friend Tom who is one of the 1812 Marines.  Here we are in front of the goat locker!

You can see more pics of the event on USS Constitution's Facebook page.
