As of November 2nd, 2018, the Town of Cicero has begun to decorate for Christmas

Cicero’s Community Park Christmas tree was missing some leaves and lights, but those will be up soon.

Christmas is as of today still 40 days away. Although the widely celebrated holiday is still more than a month away many have begun to get into the Christmas spirit. Retail stores such Target and Walmart have begun to sell Christmas items as early as the day after Halloween. Seems like the Town of Cicero has decided to get in on the Christmas spirit early. The large Christmas tree that can be seen in Community Park is near completion. While the tree itself has not yet been lit up, it’s a clear indication of the coming holidays, only problem being is it’s still quite far away. We asked people around town to see what they thought of the early decorating,

“I think it’s great that the town and its residents are getting ready early, Christmas always seems to bring out the best in people,” a Town of Cicero Resident said.

Today in the United States 9 in 10 people celebrate Christmas, even if it is not part of their religious beliefs. Over 160 different countries, there are an estimated 2 billion people who celebrate the holiday. Seeing the number of people who participate shows the importance it has to many people and why people get into the Christmas Spirit so early.

We asked some students at Morton East what they do during the holidays, many seemed to be quite similar.

“For the Holidays usually our family just gets together for dinner and exchange gifts,” senior Angel Ruiz said.

The Holidays seem to be approaching slowly, but people couldn’t be any more excited.
