Tree With A Difference


Slap bang in the middle of Regent Arcade is this 30 foot tall Christmas Tree, the centre piece of the shopping malls festive decorations. It looks like most trees at this time of year, covered in red and gold bows and baubles and hundreds of twinkling lights, but this tree has one feature that I'm sure other trees don't have - a walk way right through the middle! The arch is around 7 foot high and allows shoppers to pass through and experience the inside of a Christmas tree, if thats something that interests you! Now thats what I call a Christmas Tree!

How very unique! Never seen one like that before. Well, I don't usually frequent malls this time of year (can't stand the crowds/noise), maybe that's why! ;D

I recognized that starred blue wall so I scrolled down and, yes, just as I thought, that's where that awesome clock is. Beautiful place.

That is a nice tree but the mall itself looks nice to me. We don't have one like that here in Brookville, Ohio where I live. We don't even have a thirty foot Christmas tree except the one I planted in my back yard back in 1965.

Your photo is excellent.

You'll have to take a photo for us, as you walk through it.

Great picture! And you didn't capture the interior of the tree for us? Come on!

Oh yes...the good ole Regent Arcade Christmas tree. They bring it out each year. Looking quite good...considering its age!!!

Can't believe how Christmas has crept up on us once again. It just doesn't feel right seeing all these Christmas decorations up!!

My husband proposed to me in that tree.
I love seeing it every year.
