Poor big ol' Seattle Christmas tree! It was so sparse and bare and limp that people seeing it being put up said it was worse than Charlie Brown's Christmas tree. A lot of branches have been added to fill in the 60 foot city giant, and lovely ornaments were added. It still needs a little something, though. Tonight at 5:20 PM or so it may look a lot better when thousands of lights will bring the tree into its fullest possible glory. A huge crowd will gather downtown at Westlake Center to watch as it and the tree at the top of the Space Needle and the giant star at the top of the the Macy's (the old Bon Marche) building will all be lit simultaneously.
But right now, this giant is still a little under done. Seems the moon took pity on the much criticized tree and added it's own gift by perching right at the top when nobody except me was looking at about 2:30 AM. Now, that's a special tree!
