Halloween is over, which can only mean one thing: It's Christmas.
Or at least that's how it works at The Grove. On Monday, the popular outdoor shopping complex got a Christmas tree.
The 100-foot white fir is actually taller than the one at New York City's famed Rockefeller plaza, which was only 72 feet tall last year.
But despite being gigantic, The Grove's tree has a certain Charlie Brown vibe to it. Workers actually had to remove branches for the trip from Mount Shasta in Northern California.
The branches will be reattached over the next few days.
The tree will be decorated with more than 10, 000 lights and 15,000 ornaments. The lighting ceremony is set for Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m.
