They’ve done a really nice job on the Columbus Commons holiday decorating this year, with a big tree, large faux holiday lights in the flower beds, and light projections onto the sides of buildings. And if you stand near the tree and look toward the core downtown area, the performance stage looks somewhat like a fireplace. When I walked by tonight, the big TV screens to the right and left of the stage were playing footage of a roaring fire, too.
It’s not clear at this point whether the weather gods will cooperate by giving us a white Christmas. The forecast for this coming weekend predicts temperatures hitting the low 60s.
