Another Nati City Christmas Tradition

I have showed you many Christmas traditions in Nati City but I have never shown you the center of my city at Christmas.

Tyler Davidson Fountain ~The Genius of Water.  
It sits right in the center of my city.
It is regarded as the city's symbol and one of the area's most visited attractions.  It was dedicated in 1871 and is the centerpiece of my city.
The 43 foot tall fountain is cast in bronze and sits on a green granite base.
The inscription "To the People of Cincinnati" appears on its base.
At Christmas the square holds a giant cedar tree like Rockefeller Center.  Nati City has a big lighting ceremony.
Hi, see me here?
Behind the cedar we have an ice rink set up where you can skate everyday and into the night with the gorgeous tree lights.
The building behind the tree is where my Lee worked for years on the 45th floor and in the lobby stands this tree. 
The lighting is very funny because of a glass ceiling that goes up two stories till the upper floors in the building start.  This is where Santa comes.  He is suppose to be here at noon so I get my picture taken with Santa. I'm first in line can you tell.  Lee wanted to get here early for me.
Where Lee ate lunch today had these gorgeous window boxes and Lee sat at this window so I could see her and I got leftovers.  I always order leftovers which was salmon today.

Well I have more Christmas photos I will show you next week.

Thanks for being a friend

  8. Hi Sweet William,
    Oh Gail and I so love reading about 'Nati City and all its traditions, and we absolutely adore the pictures your Christmas cedar tree, especially the one with you posing in the foreground. And Gail wold love to go ice skating below the tree too (but I hope she would not fall over, trying to recapture her youth by skating backwards...)
    Happy Christmas, SW and Lee!

  11. Your city is SO pretty and the decor is wonderful to see. Thanks for taking us on a trip around there, SWTS!

    We have a lighted area in town here, and the theme is The Twelve Days Of Christmas, like in the song. Petcretary's fave is the one with the drummers, as she collects those:)
