The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): A 58-foot blue spruce erected in Sundance Square Plaza is being decorated this week as Fort Worth’s Christmas tree, with a lighting ceremony set Saturday. Do decorations like this put you in a holiday mood and draw you to shopping areas?
I always love Christmas as we (my family) celebrate Jesus Christ Messiah and Savior. Mary-Peaches Benavides
Why does Fort Worth still chop down a tree that’s been standing for probably a hundred years just to wind up rotting away on display for no good reason? Not to mention the cost involved with hauling it from Michigan. There are better ways to celebrate Christmas. Patti Smith
I think it is a wonderful tradition that goes back a couple of hundred years. A city Christmas tree probably says and means more than all the millions of tinsel trees that plague the malls, advertising, etc., etc. To me it means a simple Christmas, not the abomination the holiday has become these days.

Fa la la yes! David Hallum
I absolutely love Christmas decorations, but spending money because of them — no. I started Christmas shopping months ago, mainly on the Internet. Darlene Johnson
I think the early freezing weather does just as much to put me “in the mood!” Julie Pryor Wende
