Events will be held at the New Castle Presbyterian Church, 25 E. Second Street, and other locations throughout the city. Programs for the day’s events can be picked up the church.

The 17th Annual Spirit of Christmas celebration, sponsored by the New Castle Presbyterian Church and the New Castle Visitors Bureau, will feature tours of private homes and museums decorated for the season, events at the New Castle Court House and musical performances throughout town. An all-day sale of handmade crafts, jewelry, notecards, books, breads, candies, jams and soups, as well as the ever-popular “Look What $20 Will Buy” table, will take place at the church, making it easy to gather last-minute Christmas gifts. All proceeds generated from Spirit of Christmas are donated to Friendship House homeless shelters in Wilmington.

Saturday’s activities conclude with the town’s annual tree lighting ceremony and caroling in the Market Square at 5:30 p.m.
