“Is that cedar tree on 620 draped in a glittery metallic substance, or is my gluten-free eggnog too strong?”
If you’re new to the Lake Travis area, you may be puzzled by the magical appearance of roadside Christmas trees. Relax, you’re not hallucinating. It’s an Austin tradition.
Every year after Thanksgiving, trees along the busiest highways in the Lake Travis area start to get more festive as Christmas approaches. By the time December 25th arrives there are literally hundreds of brightly colored, cheery trees lining roadways in and around Austin. It’s a rather spectacular sight to see.
If you’re feeling inspired to decorate a tree yourself, you might have a few questions swirling around in that jolly head of yours.
Is this an organized thing? I bet there’s a virtual sign-up sheet on Shutterfly somewhere.
Is it legal? Getting arrested could be a major buzz kill.
Are there rules? Because there are always rules.
Can I advertise my company? Why spend marketing dollars when you have trees.
If you’d like to add this tree-tastic tradition to your holiday To-Do list, we’ve got the answers you seek.
