The gift that keeps on giving - from December 2010

I can't imagine that Seligs Jewellers would have thought they'd be getting mileage out of their little parking promotion seven years later, but I'm pleased to help out!

Today's City Daily Photo theme day is "gift" and I'm glad I remembered this post!

See more "Gifts" at this link.

Today I walked the length of Caloundra's main street looking for a sign or even the merest hint of any forthcoming festivity.   Apart from the odd shop interior, the place was entirely bereft of decoration or anything that hinted at just a little more cheeriness than usual for that matter.   I was hoping for a shot of someone in a fur trimmed hat so I could make the obvious bitingly witty commentary, but no one obliged.

Just as all hope was lost, I saw a present sitting on a post.   On investigation the post usually held up a parking meter, and the present in fact completely enveloped it.

Good on you Seligs Jewellers.  Sure there's a bit of commercial intent behind all this, but in a desert of Christmas Spirit it sticks out a mile!
