The tree was full of lights Friday. Unfortunately, some time late Saturday or early Sunday, vandals pulled down the lights.

All across the country, the immediate days after Thanksgiving, people turn their thoughts toward Christmas and all the festivities associated with it.

In Libby and Troy, residents kicked off the Holiday Season on Friday and Saturday with tree-lightings, caroling and talk of visits by St. Nicholas.

Unfortunately, vandals in Libby pulled down the lights on the tree either late Saturday or early Sunday. Plans are to replace the lights.

Here is a collection of the events in Libby and Troy.
