Naked and Almost Ready for the Holidays!

Almost Ready for the Holidays!


Naked holiday tree


This naked tree...the future Holiday Tree in Carlsbad Village---awaits its decorations. I was at the Carlsbad Village Faire last evening getting some gelato and the 25-foot fir tree was in place, but bare. It looked like they were ready to start decorating - hopefully so, since the Carlsbad Village Night of Lights is Saturday December 2, and the official Holiday Tree Lighting is Sunday the 3rd.


Here's what the Holiday Tree looked like last year. It expect this year's will be much the same...and a vast improvement over how it looked last night.

And the seating area for Santa to visit with kids and have photos at several upcoming events is ready, too. Anticipation is mounting!
