City needs more festive decorations

I am in total agreement with Mr. Hoo. I too have been wondering why our Christmas ambience has been disappearing.

The decorations and Christmas music in the malls has become less and less evident with the passing years.

What a shame. I recall years ago, City Hall had a lovely display of lights in the shape of a Christmas tree on their front lawn.

At the Richmond Centre, they had pretty little Christmas trees at every entrance and beautiful large Christmas wreaths adorned the street lamps.

Although I miss those wonderful Christmas decorations from yesteryear, Im glad to see Santa and his helpers as busy as ever with all the little ones.

Also, the city crew does such a fabulous job every year with stringing those beautiful blue lights in the trees and this year is no exception.

I love the deer in front of the City Hall. Every time I pass by, I cant help thinking of those Christmas tree lights. I know theyre long gone, but I think how lovely it would be to have a tree again, close to the deer, covered in white lights and a dusting of snow (only a dusting!)

Merry Christmas!
