Decatur Christmas Tree Goes Up

Heather sends in this great action shot of the Decatur Christmas Tree being installed above Little Shop of Stories on Decatur’s East Courthouse Square.

The official tree lighting is tomorrow night to coincide with another Terrific Thursdays.

Little Shop Brings Back Decatur Christmas Tree

On its blog, Little Shop of Stories announces that with the help of a bunch of local sponsors, the bookstore is bringing the Decatur Christmas Tree back to the Square!

The tree will sit on top of our building, so you’ll be able to see it from the square and from Ponce all holiday long. And what would a tree be with out a tree-lighting party? So come out and join us as we kick off the season (and my favorite time of year) on Thursday, December 3 at 7 pm.
