Hot chocolate will be provided by Livingston’s Healthy Community Healthy Youth (HCHY) organization to help celebrate and keep the artists warm while they create their masterpieces.

The Camuso Holiday Display was lit for the first time this year on Dec. 2 after the "Camuso Elves" worked for several months to raise funds and plan improvements to the display.

“We have great businesses in town that support this fantastic event,” said Beth Lippman, Executive Director of the Business Improvement District (BID), who has been spearheading the Committee’s fundraising efforts. “All the funds we raise are used to repair and upgrade the display. It takes a lot of work and special parts to keep them working.”

“We vowed last year that 2017 would be bigger and better than ever,” said “Chief Elf” Tom Cooney, president of the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department. “Thanks to the donations we’ve received and our dedicated and hard-working team of ‘Camuso Elves,’ we’re making good on that promise.”

Cooney and his “elves”—recruited from the Livingston Fire Department and beyond—have been working tirelessly on restoring the characters so that all of them can be included in the display this year.

“Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of, and show your support for, this annual tradition,” said Lippman.

“This is a community-wide event and we want every group in town to feel welcome to participate,” said Cooney. “So come out and help celebrate this Livingston tradition with us!”

Valyrian Steel: Where is it All? Should We Still Care?

There is a glaring hole in recent Game of Thrones seasons that needs to be addressed: the ability of Valyrian steel to destroy White Walkers has not been acknowledged since before Jon Snow’s death.

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
