The end of Christmas


I was downtown yesterday and was surprised to see this Christmas tree and the ice skating rink still up in the middle of Central Ave.


An hour later when I walked by, they were taking it down.  There will be a lot of downtown workers who will be so glad to have Central Avenue open again.

I'm surprised that the local business association would want it to be up this far into January.

What about the rink? Gone too?

The decorating and un-decorating keeps the city workers very busy.

In my childhood home, January 6 signaled the end of the Christmas holiday so this group is a bit late!

It is such a beautiful Christmas tree.
Same here as Kate: January 6th is the signal to put everything away.

Beautiful trees. Can't imagine a rink in the middle of Central Avenue! Yikes. We had one here also...but it was on a parking lot.

I don't like seeing Christmas stuff in January so I'm with the workers!

My neighbours still had their Christmas tree up and lit last evening!

Some people would have their Christmas decorations up year round. SWMBO takes ours down on New Year's Day.

We've still got nutcrackers decorating a street up here.

Reminds me of the one in Denver.

No, the rink is up until February 1. So still causing traffic problems and it's a pain leaving work.
