The ceremonies will be held Saturday , Dec . 4 and Saturday , Dec . 11 . In the afternoon Santa will be at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum . Visitors can get

later , and Boy Scout Troop 403 will have popcorn .
At 6 p . m . Roscoe Village will begin celebrating the holiday season at the main stage with the Christmas candle-lighting ceremony . The ceremony this year will honor teachers .
