(Updated at 11:00 a.m.) Due to the rain and wind predicted for tonight, the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Shirlington Village has been rescheduled.

The lighting will now take place Thursday at 6:30 p.m. It will be followed by horse and carriage rides, photos with Santa, Victorian carolers and free giveaways. Shirlington stores and restaurants will also have free samples, activities and special deals.

See the Shirlington Village web site for more information, and the unofficial Shirlington Village Blog for a photo of the tree.

    I think you meant “Thursday” at 6:30.

    The Shirlington site says the tree lighting has been re-scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 2, not Friday as you mentioned.

  • I received an email that said Dec. 3. I’m double checking now.

    • Nobody is answering the phone at Federal Realty (which owns the Village at Shirlington) but the shopping center’s Facebook page confirms that an email erroneously pinned the date as Friday. It is indeed Thursday.

    The weather either Thursday or Friday evening should be far more amenable for a Christmas tree lighting…cold, windy and nippy with a holiday feel to it.

    Ack, I hope I can dash out of a meeting in time to make this!
