Default Christmas Tree at Spanish Springs

We were driving down to Spanish Springs tonight and I was surprised to see the Christmas Tree was up! What the heck! Secondly, it was located in the walkway at the end of Main Street. IMHO, bad location.

Are the trees up at the other squares as well?

Well Christmas is just over a month away, T'giving two weeks, I see no problem. I think the location is perfect for the tree. Once it is lit I think you will agree. Perfect sight coming up main St. A better spot than last year I think, as it took space away from the square itself.

Home Depot and Lowes since mid October!

Was at Epcot yesterday for Wine and Food Festival and aside from the overwhelming amount of construction going on which made it not so nice, other than Christmas souvenirs in some shops no outside signs of Christmas that we noticed.

Was at Magic Kingdom two weeks ago and it was all Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween. Maybe Disneyland.

Heck, the Christmas Parties have already started. Most of the resorts are already done. I know Animal Kingdom is done. Not sure about Epcot or the Studios.

I second the motion that the location is perfect. Front and center where it belongs.

Note to self: Add Christmas Tree placement to list of things Villagers want to be in charge of.
