Ruby Tuesday / Santa Claus at the South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, California









The Christmas tree at this shopping mall is quite tall. The base (on the first level of the mall) is decorated with snowy hills and tunnels complete with a beautiful train to delight the eyes of all. Above is this Santa Claus which is actually on the second level of the mall. Above all of that is the top of the tree which rises to the third level and upwards to nearly the ceiling. The last photo is a small part of the fence that surrounds the entire tree, which is beautifully decorated with greenery, white lights and lush red bows. We visited all three levels to see and photograph the entire tree!

Now who wouldn't get into the spirit at this mall? Shopping is not solely the reason for me to go there (and all the way from CT...), but to see Santa on the second floor and the texas sized tree in the three-story atrium. Really!

I've not been over to South Coast Plaza or Crystal Court this year, but I remember this wonderful tree from years past. I love the way you've presented it here ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
