Friday, December 4th: The Fordham Road BID organized their fifth annual Sparkling the Heart of Fordham Holiday Lighting event. Special performance by the Fordham University Gospel Choir, refreshments, raffle, holiday music and a Christmas tree lighting finale made this event sparkle with good holiday cheer. Santa Claus took time out from his busy schedule to visit and had gifts for all the children present. Mr.Claus left before I could photograph him on his flying sleigh. Other prominent people present were the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz and City Council Majority Leader Joel Rivera.
