Countdown to Christmas
"10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1..."
And Alexandria's new Christmas decorations flickered to life Friday night.
The countdown was part of "Christmas in the Fort" organized by the Runestone Museum.
The lights and the big trees they adorn over five Broadway intersections are all new this year.
The multi-colored lights are LED, which are more energy efficient and durable, according to Alexandria Light and Power, which puts up the decorations.
