Christmas Trees In The Chateau

O Christmas tree
O Christmas tree
Your ornaments are history
~ The Cat

Have a look over at my writer's blog today, as I'm doing my annual twisted images take on Christmas today.

Every year, the Chateau Laurier has Christmas trees set up in the lounges and corridors on the ground floor, decorated by local businesses and organizations as a charity benefit for the Children's Hospital Of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Here are some from this year.

  15. @Whisk: so do I.

    @Orvokki: thank you!

    @Kay: it doesn't surprise me that the Empress would do this. I expect other hotels built for the transcontinental railroads have similar programs set up this time of year.

    @Marleen: thank you!

    @Revrunner: I certainly thought so.

    @Marianne: I found it very eye catching.

    @VP: it is odd, but one that I really liked.

    @Ciel: thank you!

    @Janis: it might be awkward!

    @EG: I figured it would get a mix of reactions.

    @Linda: the Chateau makes for a great photographic subject.

    @Red: thanks!

    @Norma: I agree!
