Christmas on the Green... ???
« on: December 12, 2011, 09:37:00 PM »
This years lights on the trees at the Court House Green are the worst ever....

Whoever over see's and is responsible should be ashamed,  It seems there was no rhyme or reason,
just slap up a million lights....

Yes there are alot, and it must have required alot of man hours....but it is not attractive at all...

This Historic Old City deserves better......

Bah humbug!

I think part of the problem is that many of the trees were pruned so that they would come in fuller in the spring. This made decoration somewhat of a challenge.  Also- there is a mix of incandescent and LED lights which may look a little "off". 

When we had our tree lighting ceremony (close to 1000 people attending) everyone ooohed and ahhhed and the kids seemed to like their "winter wonderland" despite 50 degree weather.

I hear you though. Sometimes less is more.
