West Seattle holidays: Our Lady of Guadalupe tree-trimming

High-level tree-trimming this morning at the highest-elevation Christmas tree in the city! It’s at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and School, 35th and Myrtle, right across the street from the highest point in the city (after which the nearby High Point neighborhood was named) – 512′ at Myrtle Reservoir Park. We spotted the tree-trimming crew in action while driving by a short time ago, so of course we had to pull over for a photo. OLG plans another festive tree-lighting celebration this year, as noted on the WSB West Seattle Holidays page – 7 pm Friday, December 9th, all welcome (caroling too!).

It’s one of three FOUR tree lightings this season – The Junction lights its tree at 5 pm this Saturday (December 3rd) in Junction Plaza Park, and Mars Hill Church is inviting the community to its (indoor) tree lighting at 7 pm December 7th. (Added: Just got word the White Center tree lighting at 16th/Roxbury is set for December 11th.)

    Who is the brave soul up there in the cherry picker willing to risk his safety for some good old holiday cheer?

    Years ago – probably twenty, at least – City Light used to
    Light up that big tree there on Spokane Street, next to their shops. It looked real cheery from the viaduct.

    I’m sure the PC police put a stop to it. I’m not at all a religious person, but this time of year is so dark and depressing, that I’ll take all the lights I can get. Love the Christmas lights.

Sorry, comment time is over.
