Does this look,like a Christmas Tree?

Good morning.
Every year, the state put up a Christmas tree in front of the capitol.
The lighting of the tree happens the Friday before Thanksgiving, during a festival called Silver Bells in the City where they light the tree and shoot off fireworks above the capitol. Quite a pretty sight.
The last 2 years, they've put on led lights which basically gives the tree a blue glow, unlike the old lights which looked more multicolored.
This year, even though marijuana is illegal in Michigan, I think the people that put the lights on the tree were smoking it big time.
here's what they did.....
You should have heard the crowd groan when the switch was turned on and the tree glowed.
I don't know about you, but it looks like something from Dr Seuss who-ville.
They said they were trying something different this year, and it didn't turn out as good as they had hoped, and they would go back to a more traditional look next year.
Anyway, thankfully I don't go downtown much, so I won't have to look at it.
Yesterday was snowy/rainy, so I didn't do much. Mostly played on the puter. Craig did make a delish meatloaf for dinner.
This morning, I'm off to the chiro. Later.
