It's not even Thanksgiving yet, but Chicago is already in the holiday spirit.
 
The city's official Christmas tree was lit up for the first time in Millennium Park Friday night.
 
A 69-foot Norway spruce from the Illinois town of Wauconda is this year's chosen one.
 
The tree is adorned with more than 48,000 multi-colored lights and topped with a star.
