Lighting Up That Reindeer

Perhaps one of my Toronto area readers can say if the giant Christmas reindeer in the Eaton Centre are back again? This was taken last December.

  6. That huge reindeer tickled the imagination . . . we're all kids at heart. William, I looove your header. It captures winter's magic. Merry Christmas and may all of life's blessings be yours in the New Year and beyond!

  11. I'd call this one, "Reindeer on Fire". ps When lights aglow.

  12. Giant is an understatement! It's amazing what they can do with lights now.

  13. If it isn't there, it should be! Awesome!

  14. @Whisk: it is huge.

    @Luis: I can only imagine how long it takes to put together.

    @Lowell: there is a lot of open space in that mall.

    @Tex: I certainly thought so.

    @Stuart: yes, and big reindeer need lots of hay and carrots.

    @Norma: it's quite a construct!

    @Krisztina: it's different from anything I've seen here.

    @Birdman: I was going back and forth on what to title this blog. I tend to want to be creative with blog titles.

    @Sharon: thanks!

    @Red: it certainly is.

    @Judy: and it stands out so well.

    @Cheryl: time will tell. I haven't seen a response from a Toronto reader yet, but they'll come.

  16. Something different than a Christmas tree. I like it!

  17. I'm not in Toronto anymore, but I can't imagine that these reindeer wouldn't be up! They're a Christmas staple in T-town!

  18. I haven't gone there in years but I think I saw it in the background of a news report.

  19. Are you sure that isn't a giraffe with horns?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Is it a reindeer, it looks a giraffe :)
    It certainly is beautiful when when it is lights.

  21. What a giant, no wonder he arrived there before Santa ... ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, my! That's a big Christmas statement. The people walking around it don't even look big enough to be elves.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Beth: I would think they'd do it overnight, and it would involve scaffolding.

    @Marleen: very different from a tree!

    @Halcyon: last year was the first time in a long time that I'd passed through there at Christmas time. I had no idea they were a tradition.

    @RedPat: that would make sense.

    @Ciel: definitely not!

    @Orvokki: it is massive.

    @Jan: makes you wonder how big Santa is.

    @EG: very big!

    @Kay: it dwarves them all.

    @Jennifer: it's quite a mall.

    @Shelly: I thought so!

    @Randy: definitely.

    @Hamilton: thanks for confirming it!

  24. An impressive and spectacular looking reindeer. Glad he's back. We had a wonderful display of animals at our local mall that looked like life-sized stuffed toys, but as close to the real thing as you could get. I used to look forward to them year after year, and then pfttt, no more. I was really disappointed when they didn't appear. What they replaced them with was not nearly as fun, in fact very boring in comparison. Your reindeer definitely is not boring.
