SUNDAY LOWDOWN: ‘America’s Tallest Living Christmas Tree’ Lights Up Ferndale
Thanksgiving is over. You did it! Onto the next one.
With December barging into our lives it is now time to face thew inevitable: Like it or not, Christmas is coming. Eep! As many of you know, the first significant sign of the season locally takes place down in Ferndale, Humboldt’s Christmas Capital™, where they’ll again be firing up “America’s Tallest Living Christmas Tree” Sunday evening at the end of Main Street. For those wondering, yes, LoCO has half-assed looked into the claim in the past and, yes, as far as we can tell it holds up. Enjoy Ferndale holiday joy without fear you are being scammed. It’s a spruce, for the record.
