Union Square Christmas tree goes up way too early

New, 2 comments


While some of us are still combing out Baby Ruth stains from our lace-front wigs after a particularly raucous Halloween weekend, others are ready to celebrate Christmas far too soon. Take, for example, Union Square.

This week, the massive Christmas tree went up in the city's most noted square, much to the chagrin of many who haven’t even selected the perfect side for Thanksgiving dinner. Cornbread stuffing? Funeral potatoes? Turnip gratin? How can one make such gastronomical decisions when faced with the early onslaught of Christmas? It’s all but impossible.

Suppose it makes sense seeing as how the ice skating rink went live on November 2.

Anyway, for those of you who want a too-soon dose of holiday cheer, here you go:
