Deck That Tree
Nothing says the holiday season like decorating a Christmas tree. Whether you're the type of person who uses a hefty amount of ornaments, lights, tinsel and maybe even photos of your dogs and cats (?) or the type of person that just says “fahgettaboudit,” Christmas trees are kind of sacred. So it's a privilege that our fair Burque is one of the stops on the US Capitol Christmas Tree's journey to the … you guessed it … Capitol. The tree started its journey at the beginning of November and lands in DC on Nov. 25. But you don't want to know about that, do you? You wanna know when it gets to the Duke City. Well folks, you can see this wondrous mass of timber when it lands at the National Guard Armory (600 Wyoming NE) on Nov. 15 from 3:30 to 5:30pm. The ceremony of sorts will include some hot chocolate (yes!), luminarias and all-around Christmas cheer. Oh, and it's completely free to the public. So get the kiddos in some coats (weather permitting), and ride your sleds down to the armory to see this glorious hunk of wood before it heads to its next stop. (Mark Lopez)
