Seaford, Del., Jan., 1, 1915
The lighting of the Community Christmas Tree here Christmas night attracted a large crowd from town and the surrounding country side, despite the very low temperature. The lights were first turned on the tree at 7 o'clock and were kept burning throughout the night. The tree will be kept up until after the first of the new year. At the exercises Christmas night a number of Christmas Carols were played by the Blades Concert Band. Following the concert a communiy Christmas entertainment was held in Mount Olivet Methodist Episcopal Church.
The annual Christmas entertainment of the Sunday School st St. Johns M. E. Church was held Monday night at the church. While the weather was anything but favorable the attendance was large and the young flks gave a pleasing entertainment.
The Seaford merchants express a general dissatisfaction with the business volume during the holiday as it was not equal to that of a year ago.
