    Toronto's Eaton Center "Christmas Tree"

    So, it's been all over the news here... instead of the regular Sworofski-covered Christmas Tree that the mall has been putting up for the last 10+ years, they replaced it with this:



    I, personally, HATE IT! I loved the Swarofski tree, especially because it rotated and was very, VERY sparkly (reminded me of CrazyMike's Tree!)... what does everyone else think?

    I agree with you. It doesn't even look like a Christmas tree. It looks...alien Really bad taste.

    :light:

    It's certainly nothing too special. I much prefer traditional to modern when it comes to Christmas decorations.

    My town's Christmas lights this year were very disappointing.

    This year's lights certainly leave a lot to the imagination in comparison to last year's.

    Ugly. Ugly Ugly. Ugly. I suppose the mall is trying to be "HIP" or something with this "ARTISTIC" Christmas Tree .. but to me .. it just looks like ca-ca. Near here we have Rockefeller Center's Christmas Tree, which is pretty much THE BIGGEST touring attraction in NYC during the Christmas Season. They've always had a real tree and I think if they ever went fake (let alone this thing) people would revolt.

    Is this "THE" Christmas Tree of Toranto or is there a more popular one city-center or something?

    I wonder if it isn't because of 'economic' reasons and they just don't want to tell anyone. I have noticed a good number of places down-sizing their displays over the years.

    I'm not a fan either. It would work in Tomorrow Land at Disney, but that is probably the only place where I think it might look good. I realize most of us are only going by the picture, Does it look better in person?
