O Holiday Tree

The downtown city streets are already adorned with holiday snowflakes and lights. The Salvation Army kettle (or as I see it a giant red cauldron) is prominent at Campus Martius as the city prepares for the annual lighting of the Tannenbaum/Christmas Tree/Holiday Tree in the city. The festivities will take place from 5 to midnight this Friday and boasts entertainment from Mitch Ryder and Thornetta Davis. The Detroit Skate Club will be on hand to make you feel terrible about your own skating skills and carriage rides will be available as well. Inside Detroit will be conducting a bar tour from 5:30-8:30 and will have you back for the lighting of the tree. The unofficial state song of Michigan is set to the tune of “O Tannenbaum!” However, due to political correctness, I am not sure that “O Christmas Tree” can be played at the Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony.
