O, Christmas tree

    WHYY Feed blogger Shannon McDonald snapped this picture at Headhouse Square’s Winter Wonderland celebration on Sunday. All the action centered on 2nd and Lombard, where kids were carriage rides and portraits with Santa were on offer.

    As the sun went down, the anticipation went up, and the lights came on. Promptly at 6 p.m., the tree-lighting ceremony got underway, culminating in a beautiful spectacle. It really is beginning to look a lot like the holidays.
