The Castro Merchants business group held its annual holiday tree lighting Monday, December 2 at Castro and 18th streets. Jim Oswald, director of marketing and communications at Meals on Wheels San Francisco, shared a moment in front of the tree with his adopted dachshund, Lulu, and thought about the spirit of the season. "The holidays can be difficult for many, which is why Meals on Wheels is grateful for the ongoing support from the community, allowing us the privilege to serve meals and companionship to nearly 5,000 homebound seniors in the city and making their holidays a little brighter," he told the Bay Area Reporter in a text.

The tree lighting ceremony included performances from some of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band (the city's official band), as well as a visit from Santa and his elf.
