Christmas Cheer - From November 2015

Yes it's become something of a hobby-horse of mine, and I suppose if a government can't make plans to provide sufficient infrastructure for growth, how can we expect it to understand that the Christmas needs to be thought about every year!

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!
