Christmas tree lighting ceremony brightens Yonkers

It's officially Christmas time in the City of Yonkers!
The annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony was held outside of Yonkers City Hall last night.
The celebration included a number of musical performances and a visit from Santa Claus.
Families at the tree lighting say their favorite part of the tradition is showing support for their city. "Kids performing, supporting Yonkers and being part of the community," says one reveler.
This was the first year the city included the word Christmas in the event title.
