We will have lots of food and other goodies, plus seasonal music and discounts, including 30 percent off all non-prescription items.

Christmas Under the Clock is again being sponsored this year by UPCO (Uptown Plain City Organization) and the Village of Plain City.

Participating open house locations will be giving away lots of prizes, gifts, and refreshments. The more open houses you visit, the more chances you have to win. Pick up a map at the first open house you visit to locate all of the other places holding open houses. There will also be a copy of the map posted on the Christmas Under the Clock Facebook page, so check it out before you head out for the evening.

The tree will be lit up by the Tree Lighting Pixies, winners of the Christmas Coloring Contest.
