Alright Toronto, it’s officially socially acceptable to start getting into the holiday spirit, because the city’s official Christmas tree at Nathan Phillips Square has arrived.

The 60-foot tree is here in preparation for the 53rd annual Cavalcade of Lights, which will take place on November 30 and will feature the first lighting of Toronto’s official Christmas tree along with a spectacular fireworks display.

Photos shared on social media show that the tree is standing proudly outside of city hall and over the next few weeks, a crew of people will be in charge of decorating the tree, which will glitter with more than 525,000 lights and 700 individual ornaments and will light up Nathan Phillips Square through to New Year’s Eve.

The tree is truly a sight to see and a holiday tradition that every Torontonian should partake in.
