Christmas Trees Toronto

Christmas Countdown: 11 Christmas Trees

Love it or hate it, the city is once again covered in holiday glitter and glamour. I've been searching all corners of Toronto for holiday exhibitionism, good or bad, and for each of the remaining 11 days until Christmas I'll be posting a different photo essay documenting the annual make-over. Today I feature Christmas trees.

Big, small, simple or gaudy, Christmas trees are the show pieces of holiday decorations. Unlike wreathes and snowmen, trees can deliver "ooh"s and "ahhh"s, pushing and shoving, and enough excitement that there is no chance to get within a few feet of the tree. Of all the decorations I've seen this year, only Christmas Trees have garnered people to stop and take photos, not just of the tree, but of them in from of the tree, and truth be told, Christmas Trees are the only decorations to have shown up in my friends facebook photo galleries, so that says something I guess. I've lived vicariously through them all this year, my tree is only one foot tall, strong enough to hold only a tiny bow.
