It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas (2009 Edition, Part 1)

Sure, it's just a chunk of black metal, but it's also the harbinger of the holiday season.  The base for the Christmas tree has been put in place in the plaza of the John Hancock Center (875 North Michigan Avenue).  Nearby, crews are putting the lights up in the trees that line the Magnificent Mile, and in the Loop, Macy's is working on its annual Christmas window displays.

And to think, I still have one more pumpkin to carve for Halloween.


  1. I absolutely love this insight. Thanks for sharing this unique observation.

    From this unassuming metal chunk will blossom the joy and beauty of Christmas.
