The Obvious

The city is lighting its Christmas tree on Saturday. It used to be ‘the biggest, prettiest tree in the country’ (to quote their ads), fresh from the forest. Then a couple years ago our Mayor went to Korea and saw this modern eco-friendly tree, basically a cone-shaped Eiffel tower covered in branches. That first year it was a creepy walk-in affair. With stairs. Then last year I wasn’t here to see it. This year it’s the tower alright, but its insides aren’t showing. We’ll try to go see the lighting show.

Also, there’s a Santa Claus assaulting people at the biggest mall while cheesy music is blasting from huge speakers at the entrance. We saw him today while shopping for gifts (got me an insanely expensive uber-cute jacket, yay!) and taking pictures of festive decorations. It’s that time of year.
