One sure fire way to get into the Christmas spirit is to check out the downtown decorations. I took the MAX light rail to downtown Portland one afternoon and did just that. I looked at store decorations and shopping mall decorations but what I think I enjoyed most was the diversity of decorations in the downtown hotels. Here are some samples. Merry Christmas!

|The Benson used huge ornaments.|

|Nordstrom had some interesting wooden and felt pine cones.|
|So then it was off down the street to find a traditional Doug fir.|
This beautiful tree was in the lobby of the Hotel Lucia.
