In case you didn’t notice, Green Lake is full of holiday spirit! Not only do we boast our very own “Christmas Lights Tour,” but also decorate trees with twinkly lights (tree lighting must be hard wired into your Green Lake DNA). Case in point is a mysterious and beautiful photograph taken in 1941. And while we’re not sure who is responsible for this stunning snapshot or the backstory for this Christmas tree lighting, we think you’d agree that its captures Green Lake’s unique holiday spirit.
