Straub Park St Petersburg Christmas preparations

Preparing Christmas displays in north Straub Park in downtown St Petersburg

North Straub Park


This morning as I passed North Straub Park in downtown St Petersburg I noticed a parked trailer (sans cab) marked X-MAS and many City of St Petersburg workers preparing a Christmas display. The gray skies reminded me of pre-holiday days up north.

But it’s only the first half of November! For me, that’s too early to be seeing Christmas displays. Later in the morning I was shopping at CVS and saw that they already had Christmas cards on display. Call me old-fashioned, but I want to wait until December to see Christmas decorations.

A week ago I was at The Grande condominiums on Sand Key and was surprised to see their lobby already had Christmas trees and decorations.

When are you ready to see Christmas decorations and displays?
