Three local Christmas kickoff events suffered under stormy, wintry weather that began Sunday afternoon and continued throughout the day into the evening hours. A Trevorton celebration was rescheduled; another in Tharptown opened and then closed early; and the third, in Elysburg, went on as scheduled but was moved indoors for the most part.  

For organizers, the atmospheric challenges came in the form of bitterly cold temperatures, initially accompanied by gusty winds and rain, which added yet another layer of complexity and planning to their already busy schedules.
