All I want for Christmas is... Thanksgiving

In the U.S. Christmas decorations rarely go up before Thanksgiving. However, lacking Thanksgiving, the Christmas spirit starts early in Brazil. The Rio Sul shopping mall aready has a huge display across the entire front of the building. So what do Amazonian and subtropical trees look like decked out in white lights and tinsel... I wouldn't know, because they use coniferous trees just like in the U.S. (no, I don't mean real ones)
