    Some things to note: 1) First National Center has lights on; 2) so does the Parkside Building; 3) you can see Skydance Bridge and the Wheeler ferris wheel if you look closely.




    Fantastic pictures.

    Interestingly, with new owners of what was Sandridge Tower and BancFirst Tower, neither has the holiday-season crosses displayed this year.

    Since the state now owns Sandridge, you can be pretty certain the cross will not reappear there. And of course, Bancfirst is under construction but they could have still done it on 3 sides of the building.

    That is a shame. Although the cross means different things to different people (or nothing at all), for me it was like the BC Clark jingle that you knew it was the holiday season when they appeared. It was just part of our December skyline. Guess not having it up will be the new normal. (and understandable as it is a state building now)

    i think it has been reported before that BancFirst will continue the crosses after the renovation

    as a christian myself; red/green holiday colors are better anyway, and more visibly inclusive. Crosses can be perceived by many as exclusionary and IMO it looked horrible to have 8 huge crosses on the skyscrapers. More classy would have been a cross on one side of one building and maybe some other image(s) on other side/bldg or just green/red colors.

    BTW, Red/Green are the colors of Christmas (whereas the cross is the symbol of Christianity).

    St Joseph's Old Cathedral has it's huge cross lit up every day in the skyline as do many other houses of worship; that's sufficient.

    from the BancFirst building thread

    this building will have its back up in the future

    by the above logic - a tombstone is a sign of a person's death, therefore it is a sign of their birth too?<br><br>as a Christian, I disagree with you that the Cross is a sign of Christmas. It is the sign of Easter, that Christ died for your sins (he died on a cross - its a sign of his death and resurrection); but the sign of his birth was a star and the gifts brought to him (which were decorated Green and Red and more modern Christmas tree (and outlines).

    Can we stop this inane bickering to prove who knows the least about Christianity and symbols and get back to posting pretty pictures of OKC. Why does every thread have to degenerate into trying to prove who is the smartest or wisest?

    Found this on a blog page from back home. The old Philadelphia Bell Telephone Building lit up with a tree back in 1963
