Last weekend, I met Mom at the Mall of America to photograph some of the holiday decorations she had told me about. Although I miss the Peanuts characters that were retired with the end of Camp Snoopy, I enjoyed seeing the theme this year.
The elevator shaft above wasn't part of the theme, but was disguised to look like a building behind the line to see Santa. And the "Seussian" trees below were seen in the former Camp Snoopy, now called Nickelodean Universe.The blue-white-silver decor was best displayed in the rotunda (where a high school choir was singing).
Two gigantic trees were adorned with giant musical instruments made of wire and glitter, while wintery branches festooned the columns.
