Aspen's Sardy House giant tree lighting ceremony last week is the unofficial start to Aspen's Christmas Holiday Season, and many locals were on hand to celebrate. It was a grand event. The lights change colors every few minutes, and it is something to see. The tree is a GIANT Colorado Blue Spruce. (SKICO, Dan Beyer)
