The ninth annual Old Globe Christmas Tree Lighting kicked off the holiday season in conjunction with San Diegos favorite holiday musical, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  Designed by Grinch scenic designer John Lee Beatty, the unique tree will be located in the center of the Globe Plaza for the run of the show. This free, fun family event featured a special live performance by members of The Grinch cast and a delightful holiday snowfall on the Globe's Copley Plaza.  

Five-year-old Nicole La Fond was the winner of the “Santa for a Day” contest, and she and her twin sister, Natalie, helped The Grinch light the tree in front of thousands. She was drawn as the winner after creating a drawing expressing what the holidays mean to her. She and her family received a VIP Family Four-Pack to attend the 4:30 p.m. performance of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and, directly after the show, took part in the Tree Lighting.
