Isn't it pretty.
Every year a tree is placed and decorated in Pioneer Courthouse Square, which is sort of the living room of Portland. There is also a tree lighting ceremony each year.
This year there was a bit of excitement when a teenage would-be terrorist tried to set off a car bomb to kill as many people as possible. Fortunately the FBI were on top of it and nobody was hurt.
And now, there is an ale celebration at the Square. That's why there are so many tents such that you can't see the bottom portion of the tree in the above picture.
Below is a picture of it before the tents were placed (and before it was decorated) so you can get an idea of its exact size.
