|Waiting for the lights to be switched on|
If you are reading this in the US, you may be saying, hold on a minute here - the city government puts up a Christmas tree in the centre of town? And throws a party, complete with a torchlight parade, music, dancing, an appearance by Santa, fireworks (set to "Let it Go" much to the delight of the girls) but ALSO the aforementioned Christmas tree, lighted decorations with Christmas themes, and a Nativity play? What happened to separation of Church and State?

So, Christmas Light Night 2014.
|The Christmas Tree, lit up|
|The City Centre gets a teacup ride for the occasion|
|...and really large Disney balloons...|
