Do You Have A Holiday Tree In Your Neighborhood?

These two community trees are already decorated near the Walnut Creek-Lafayette border

They spring up this time of year and sometimes people aren't even how the tradition got started or who does it.

In certain neighborhoods, trees that aren't on anybody's property in particular are decorated for the holidays.

We came across two such trees along Old Tunnel Road perched above Highway 24 near the Walnut Creek-Lafayette border.

Anybody know the story behind these two trees at the intersection of Old Tunnel Road and El Curtola Boulevard?

Do you have trees in your neighborhood that are decorated by either the community or an unknown person?

Tell us about them in the comments section and, better yet, send us a photo.

Why don't you call it a Christmas Tree? There are Christmas tree lots selling Christmas trees, not Holiday trees. Merry Christmas.

Thank you, Tricia! "Holiday tree" WTH is that? In the U.S., more people celebrate Xmas than believe in (any) God. Who is offended by "Christmas Tree?" The Winter Solstice pre-dates Jesus, Mohammed, Moses and the human race.
