Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Hollywood has already started shaping up for the Christmas season with the arrival of a 60-foot Christmas tree on Monday afternoon at the landmark set of L. Ron Hubbard’s Winter Wonderland on Hollywood Boulevard. After its 600 mile journey from Lake Almanor in Northern California, the enormous White Fir weighing 5,500 pounds was raised and guided into position by a 40-ton crane on Hollywood Boulevard just after midday.
Winter Wonderland is a yearly tradition that was started by best-selling author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard (http://www.lronhubbard.org) when he first gave the children of Hollywood the gift of a giant Christmas tree in 1983.
Every year since 1983 hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles residents of several generations, and tourists from all corners of the world have enjoyed the classic wintry setting, which has continued through the donations of the Friends of L. Ron Hubbard Foundation.
On the evening of the Hollywood Christmas Parade (28 Nov), the official tree lighting ceremony will take place with the arrival of Santa and the opening of Winter Wonderland for the holiday season. Over 40,000 people visit L. Ron Hubbard's Winter Wonderland each year.
