Normally the Christmas light decorations are put up on Parque Central before the Burning of the Devil on the first week of December and they take them down on Día de la Candelaria (Candlemas) on February 2. This time, however, I believe the Christmas lights were up even before Thanksgiving and they were taken down until this week. This is how the illuminated tree branches look at twilight and at night.
Below there are two additional photos to add context and so you don’t get the wrong idea about the photo above.
