It’s that time of the year again, time to start thinking about your Holiday Lights plan! As the days grow shorter and the nights get cooler, we are getting closer and closer to the Holiday season!
Here are couple fun facts about the Holiday season:
– From 1887-1933 a fishing schooner called the “Christmas Ship” would tie up at the Clark Street Bridge in Chicago and sell spruce trees from Michigan to Chicagoans.
– The tradition of an official Chicago Christmas tree was initiated in 1913 when one was first lit by Mayor Carter H. Harrison in Grant Park.
