In case you are looking to buy the ol' [insert your name here!] family holiday tree on Thanksgiving

You're in luck! You can find some at St. Mark's Market...

Whole Foods Bowery ($50 for a Fraser Fir!)...

...and a new treecomer on Second Avenue in front of Jupiter 21...

No trees just yet at the Trailer Park Santa stand on First Avenue and East 14th Street...

There are likely more stands up. Maybe outside Rite Aid on First Avenue?

Anyway! Buy early, discard early, and pretend it is leftover from December 2012... win a prize.

Looking at the snow (sort of), enjoying the quiet streets

Dave on 7th is out looking at the snow... and enjoying the empty holiday streets...

Candlelight Caroling tonight in West Stuyvesant Square Park

Lordy I can still hear the drunken Santas butcher Run DMC's "Christmas in Hollis" on East Fifth Street that one Saturday...



Tonight at 5:30 in West Stuyvesant Square Park on Second Avenue and East 16th Street...

... there'll some classy holiday cheer...

EV Grieve's last-minute holiday gift ideas

Spotted in the window at Brickman & Sons on First Avenue...

You know how it is sometimes. You're at the bar with your friends, and everyone seems to be talking at once! You need to cut through the clutter and make your point! Then look no further than the Mega-Sound Megaphone, which will slip easily into one of the three or four bags that you're carrying. It's also good for tracking down your friends who may have stranded you on a quiet side street at 3 a.m.

Perhaps you can think of other uses for it. Regardless, it's $9.99.

It's a wonderful life now on Avenue A, for several reasons...

Playing at (or outside) 2A ... and no woo-wooers on Avenue A...

4 holiday-related events that you can do today in the East Village

You can:

Attend the Tompkins Square Park tree lighting at 4

Shop at the "De-Flea Market" at Bar 82

Go to the The Neighborhood School’s Holiday Fair

• Visit the Christmas Bazaar at the Ukrainian Museum on East Sixth Street

Let me know what I'm forgetting in the comments... (What I'm forgetting about holiday-related events, that is...)

Tree Lighting this afternoon in Tompkins Square Park

The lights are on the tree...

The festivities get started at 4 ...

As The Villager reported this week, the Tompkins Square Park Neighborhood Coalition will dedicate the event to the memory of Kevin Dowd, a former vice president of the coalition who died March 8 after a battle with lung cancer.

It could have been a very different tree lighting this year... Hurricane Irene brought down a tree back in August that nearly took out the Park's Holiday Tree...
