‘Tis the Season To Decorate

By Haide Hernandez

Christmas came early this year. Really early.

On Oct. 15 a 96-foot, 10-ton white fir was inserted at Town Center Park across the street from South Coast Plaza, kicking off the holiday buzz while signaling the start of retail’s busiest period.

While some say it is too soon to start holiday preparations, it is never too early to get that warm winter season feeling that hugs the heart.

The time leading up to Christmas sparks excitement for holiday food and spending time with the family.

As Halloween and Thanksgiving pass and the days get colder yet cozier, Starbucks cups turn red, and my sandal tan finally fades.

So the Christmas countdown is already underway.

An almost hundred-foot Christmas tree set up and decorated? Check. Mistletoe and a special someone to kiss beneath it? There’s still two months!
