The holiday season is here, and that means the return of one of Austin’s weird little traditions. 

Drivers along Loop 360 (Capital of Texas Highway), already treated to a scenic view, will see a more spirited display during wintertime. For years, Austinites have taken to decorating the trees that line the sides of the highway with holiday decorations. Everything from bows to ribbons to ornaments to stars adorns the makeshift Christmas trees. 

Our 360 tree, because here in Austin we decorate trees on the side of the road (and yes, we're going to clean ours up after the holidays too!)
