There were treats and punch (it was a party, after all), and in addition to dancing we also played Blind Man's Bluff. The U.S.S. Constitution also celebrated its annual tree lighting, but we didn't go down to the docks. It was decorated quite nicely, though! The Constitution's facebook page has pictures.

December is a very busy time of year, but I couldn't imagine the holidays any other way!
P.S. Happy Hanukkah, to those who will also be lighting candles tonight!
