Love it. They've been going for over 15 years. Always enjoyed them.

Why is it that I never see anyone putting them up or taking them down?

I like the trees, too, as long as whoever puts them up also takes them down. I have seen some that never are cleaned up. Then it just becomes a litter and trash problem. Decorated trees don't look so great in August when they are tattered, faded, eyesores. But hopefully, the elves who do this understand to clean up when the season is over.

I saw the trees for the first time yesterday on the way home from work and it was very nice!! Today there are more people decorating trees and also some stacking firewood in two piles several feet high. What's up with the stacks of firewood? Must have seen three different groups of people doing that and I couldn't help wonder why.

My old commute used to take me down 360 and I've watched them grow over the years. I'll have to make a trip this weekend to check them out - I miss seeing them!
