Shame they made it uglier with their decorating. Blecch. Overkill.
Oh, well. Thank you, Halifax!
The unfortunate trend of recent years towards all white lights is so sterile and un-festive. I don't know where it came from. At least this tree is colorful.
Yah - agree just draping strings up and down gets it lit, but looks rushed. Quite different that the Rockefeller center tree, where they wrap nearly ever branch with lights..
Looks like a Mardi Gras tree
Nice tree, ugly decorating.
Reminds me of my suburban home town. The "Season's Greetings" sign and decorations went up on a traffic island. The island was unlit (except for a little floodlight for the sign) and there wasn't an actual tree - just a flagpole in the middle of the island. They ran twelve strings of Christmas lights from the top of the pole to an evenly-spread circle on the ground, creating a cone-shape.
It is harder to do, but swag/garland style looks better to my eyes than the radial lines. Whatever, another mature tree is killed and THAT is the spirit of the winter holidays!
