Above, Nico Fiaravanti has his face painted as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at Murrysville's 2014 Night of Lights. This year's celebration will be Dec. 1, 2017.

It might only be a day after Thanksgiving yet, but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

At least it soon will be in all three Star communities, as officials prepare for celebrations kicking off the holiday season.

• In Delmont, the annual Holiday Jingle Night will be 5 to 7 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, at the Delmont Volunteer Fire Company hall, 2360 Route 66. The evening will include a visit from Santa.

• In Export, the annual Light Up Night will be held downtown at 7 p.m. Dec. 1. This holiday season will also include a storefront decorating contest, sponsored by the J.M. Hall Jr. Community Trust. Entries are due by Dec. 1. For more, email Councilwoman Melanie Litz at

• In Murrysville, the annual Night of Lights will be held rain or shine on Dec. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Town Square and the First United Methodist Church at 3916 Old William Penn Highway.

Because of the event, Old William Penn Highway will be closed from the intersection of Sardis Road and Vincent Hall Road to McCloy Avenue between the hours of 5 and 8:30 p.m. Police will be present to aid in routing traffic and assist with parking for the event.

The annual Gingerbread House contest will also return.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
