Deck the Halls… er… Plaza

LA Live in downtown Los Angeles is looking super festive, eh? Tonight I walked from Staples Center to Starbucks to get some hot chocolate (it was 60 degrees, folks, definitely hot beverage weather!). I got really excited when I turned the corner and saw the ice rink and Christmas tree in place. And is it a Christmas tree! The brightly lit tree is 72 feet tall (or six stories, if that’s easier to imagine!) and is definitely the focal point of the crazy bright, crazy busy plaza. There were only a few people ice skating but there were plenty of people taking pictures. Haha. Christmas is my favorite holiday and seeing everything decorated gets me all giddy. I think I had better put our Christmas tree up this week. Fa la la la la, la la la laaaaa!
