Ferris Wheel, just like the one that my dad and I used to ride on Christmas Eve in -25c temperatures.... OK. That might be a lie:

Decorations have arrived in Wal-Mart, although they are later than usual... Wal-Mart still has a lot of decorating to do!


Snowblowers and Christmas decorations. Better than the barbecues that were there a few weeks ago:


Christmas Trees await your purchase:

Yes. Nice picutres.
Great photo quality as well.

In answer to your question: No, the decorations at Crabtree have changed very little over the last 10 years.
They are stuck in a rut so to speak.....but it's a real nice rut!

Forty years ago (yes, the mall is that old!) they used to have Santa and his sleigh with reindeer on the roof but they took that down by the end of the 70's.

Crabtree and I go back a long way. Watched it being built back in 1971-1972 on my way to high school each morning.
