The Decatur Christmas Tree

Decatur is a fantastic town  to live in. We have festivals, parties, concerts and independent shops and restaurants. We have Beach Parties and Book Festivals, live music in the spring and a community bonfire in the winter. But for the past few years there has been no Decatur Christmas tree, no gathering of the masses to sing carols and eat goodies and spread holiday cheer. This year we decided to change that.

With the help of other businesses (listed below), we are bringing the city Christmas Tree back to Decatur! The tree will sit on top of our building, so you'll be able to see it from the square and from Ponce all holiday long. And what would a tree be with out a tree-lighting party? So come out and join us as we kick off the season (and my favorite time of year) on Thursday, December 3 at 7 pm. East Court Square (the parking cul-de-sac in front of our store) will be closed, so there will be lots of room for everyone to hang out and for kiddies to run around. Glenwood Academy's choir will lead us in carol singing and we'll also have some tasty treats for everyone.We are also doing this in conjunction with Terrific Thursdays so shops all over the square will stay open late and offer discounts and specials for all your holiday shopping needs after the lighting is over.

Thanks to all the businesses that helped make this possible! 


Thanks also to Glennwood Academy and Collage Boutique!

We are so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful, supportive community. We're excited about the holiday season and hope you'll come out and celebrate with us.

Merry Christmas!
