And just like that, the holiday season is nearly here. To kick off the festivities, Caruso Affiliated's bustling outdoor shopping centers, The Grove and Americana at Brand (above), have officially mounted their respective ginormous Christmas Trees.
Keeping with tradition of years past, The Grove's 100-foot white fir (below) has arrived from Mt. Shasta, boasting a nosebleed height that even beats Rockefeller Center's holiday green. The tree will be lit with a whopping 15,000 lights and 10,000 ornaments during a pop star-heavy lighting show on November 16th at 7:30pm.
Real question: Where the heck did the time go?
