Oh, Christmas Tree: The Corporation of Hamilton’s traditional Christmas tree at City Hall competes for attention with the lit-up Anglican Cathedral (Photograph by Akil Simmons)

Hamilton has been ablaze with Christmas lights as the City returned to normal after the Covid-19 pandemic put a damper on the holiday season in 2020 and 2021.

From the traditional Christmas tree outside City Hall to the Anglican Cathedral, and from Point House at Albouys Point to all of Hamilton’s major shopping streets, the lights have lifted spirits and introduced children to the magic of the holiday season.
