Christmas Lights Installation at Daley Center - Chicago 2018
The lighting of the trees around City Hall and the County Building happen every Fall and I've been documenting it on my walks to work for the past few years. Here's the lights going up this year in the photo above. I took this photo more than a week ago, so despite me posting it on the 26th, they technically started the lighting the trees in mid-October.
Here's the post from 2017 showing the lights going up on October 27th.
In 2016, the lights went up in early October.
And in 2015, the lights went up in September.
This raises the age-old question about Christmas Creep when it comes to holiday decorations: Is this genuine Christmas Creep? Or is it just good planning?
