The Grove Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular

The Grove's 11th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular - Arrivals

Every year right around this time, most people start to get excited for the holidays. At this point, stores are pushing holiday deals and decorations, desperately trying to get you thinking and shopping for the holidays. I prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving to really get into all the holiday fun, but that’s just me.

However, it’s not just stores that are getting into the holiday spirit; malls are too. Many malls have their holiday decorations up to help customers get in a “holly jolly” good mood. In some locations, Santa will often visit to take pictures with kids, families, and even pets. This past Sunday, The Grove in Los Angeles put on one heck of a holiday kick-off party.

This year was the 11th annual Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular. Hollywood always likes to make a big scene, and this event was no exception to that. The tree lighting was much more than plugging in the lights, although the tree was certainly lit up as usual. There were also seven live performers including Jewel, CeeLo Green, Mary J. Blige, and more. These stars dressed to impress and they all appeared to be more than ready for the upcoming holiday season. No celebrity appearance would be complete without a red carpet, though. It might be a little out of place at a mall, but I would say it’s pretty fitting for Hollywood Stars, right? Celebrities and guests were not the only people in attendance at this annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony — Santa Claus was there too, and he didn’t miss his chance to take a walk down the red carpet.

Singer-songwriter Jewel and Santa Claus were spotted posing together on the red carpet for the paparazzi. Jewel came with a huge smile on her face and was clearly excited for the holidays and the grand performance. She wore a leather grey/black dress that had just a little lace around the shoulders and paired it with fun metallic pumps! Santa was sporting nothing more than expected in his red suit, white beard, black boots, and a very sparkly red holiday belt.
