Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum

Omaha's Durham Museum
The Durham Museum celebrates the magic of the season during Christmas at Union Station. The famous indoor tree custom began in the 1930s when Union Pacific would decorate and display large evergreens from the Pacific Northwest for Union Station travelers to enjoy during the holiday season.  The holiday custom returned when Union Station became a museum in the 1970s. Today, this cherished tradition continues with the region’s largest indoor Christmas tree and an exceptional line-up of family-friendly events.

Such a magnificent tree, it's a shame it was cut down but it really is beautiful all decorated like that, and I hope that travelers rushing on their way to wherever will take a few moments to linger and enjoy it! Love how you caught the reflection of its lights. And I am digging that beautiful ceiling! :-)

Now that's what I call a decent Christmas tree Raf, none of that garish purple and blue here. Love the Christmassy reflections.
