This is the giant Christmas tree that the Old Town Basket Shop puts up every year at Plaza Don Luis in Old Town.
looks like one big tree, like the national Christmas tree at the White
House or the tree at Rockefeller Center. But it’s really 130 Christmas
trees put into a huge frame. It takes them about three days using two
cherry pickers to put this together. They start from the top, putting
it together and decorating it as they go.
The official lighting is always at the Old Town Holiday Stroll, the first Friday of December.
It’s comforting to see the giant
Christmas tree standing as it has for the past decade. The tougher the
times, the tighter we all hang onto our traditions.
