It’s only November 9th but it looks like Christmastime in the City of Toronto and many are not happy about it. Last week we discussed retailers displaying holiday items before Remembrance Day but it seems the city is also gearing up for the Christmas season by erecting a fifteen metre high Christmas tree in Nathan Philips Square. Locals are calling the action disrespectful as Christmas is still a ways away and Canadians should hold off on holiday planning until November 12th. The city hall tree will hold 700 decorations and almost four kilometres worth of lights but the first illumination is scheduled for November 28th.
Was it too soon to erect the tree? Is it enough for them to hold off illuminating it?
