It’s not Christmas, but the Square still shines. The twinkling lights, snaked around the trees like artificial vines, give this place new life. The glowing red sign “15 Public Square” is adjacent to the neon sign that illuminates the word “Circles” also in red. An overarching theme of math is present here, specifically geometry. This place, the Square, is a living breathing paradox. The Square isn’t a four-sided polygon but actually a circular shape. But circle or square, it doesn’t matter. What matters is the Square is at the center of our city.
