Our Favorite Pins | Tree Lighting

Despite what the candy selection at your local CVS has been telling you since the day after Halloween, the countdown to Christmas doesn't officially begin until the tree lightings do! That's the sparkling signal for you to (finally!) start setting out some decorations, gear up the nostalgic holiday movie playlist and freely hum Vince Guaraldi's timeless Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack without your coworkers plotting your untimely demise. Truly, it's the most wonderful time of the year—and we think its magical kickoff is worth celebrating, Pinterest-style.

So go on now—brew up some homemade hot chocolate and settle in to revel in the pretty, glimmering charm of the season—for Christmas comes but once a year, and our five favorite pins this week are here to deliver it right to your door (or screen). Trees are lighting up all across the globe this week and our picks will illuminate your inspiration boards just as brightly!
