I love it.
Christmas lights and decorations make me happy, so we headed downtown last night to check out the National Christmas Tree, which is surrounded by state trees. We weren't sure what to expect, because the former National Christmas Tree is no more following a February windstorm. The new tree is kind of short, but I thought the decorations were better. Just like last year, we went the weekend after the tree lighting, which unfortunately meant that Santa was not yet in attendance and the Yule Log was not yet lit. Oh well, there were trains and trees and lights.
