Don’t you love that once the stores clear out the Halloween candy, it’s suddenly Christmas, Christmas, Christmas?
Here, a few more clues that the holiday season is right around the corner:
Red cups at Starbucks The arrival of these ruby-colored cups at Starbucks makes us (almost) giddy about the lines at NorthPark.
Lights along Beverly Drive This Highland Park street is our favorite place to get into the spirit. Lights usually go up November 1 and last through the New Year.
DIFFA’s wreath auction The Holiday Wreath Collection is always a fun way to kick off the season. Check out this year’s trends on November 13 (think unexpected greenery like elephant ear, basil and fern) and support the Design Industry for Fighting Aids.
Holiday windows Since November 1st, you can ogle the windows at St. Michael's Women's Exchange in Highland Park Village, which are always decked out in holiday cheer. And don't miss the Neiman Marcus Downtown official window-lighting ceremony on November 22!
