And so it begins.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful that the Sunshine Coast Council actually acknowledges the coming "holiday" season by its proper name, but once again in a city, no, a REGION which relies on tourism for its principal income, surely this effort at street decoration could be described as paltry!
To be fair, there is a matching sign on the other side of the street, (which has a more generic wish, no doubt to appease those who would wince at the use of the word "Christmas" while happily buying their cards with snow-scenes on them....) . Seriously, do two little flags in the main street of a major suburb send an adequate message that we are grateful for your tourism dollar and will do what we can to make your stay a joyous and festive one?
Thank goodness for the good will of the traders in town.
Merry Shopping under Christmas skies!
