My town's Christmas Lights...

... are still non-existant!
A quick visit to the High Street showns nothing prepared yet, but there are some posters around saying the "big switch on" (sic) will be on the 27th November. And the mayor is promising it will be Sutton's biggest ever Christmas lights switch-on.

Low energy bulbs will provide the illumination for a spectacular display stretching from ASDA to the station, accompanied by magical snowflakes projected onto walls and surfaces.

Thirty live acts across four stages and guest appearances from Father Christmas and Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants will herald the launch of Sutton Council's Town Centre Partnership programme of Christmas events.

Starting at 4pm, the evening will culminate in the Big Switch On at 7pm, followed by live music at Santa's Winter Garden, a Bavarian beer garden, serving mulled wine, German beers and hot food.

A traditional Advent market will be open during the four-week run up to Christmas, selling food, crafts and Christmas gifts. Music lovers can enjoy live music from Thursday to Saturday and "Unsigned Sundays" featuring up-and-coming bands playing original material live from 2 - 6pm.

Move aside Sugababes and McFly!!! SpongeBob is switching on our Christmas Lights!!! LOL

Olá Jojo :)
Olha que acho que o Cristo não concorda com o letreiro luminoso da Samsung. Da última vez que estava a atravessar a Ponte 25 de Abril pareceu-me vê-lo a olhar cá para baixo com expressão bem desaprovadora.
Pelo menos, há alguns anos atrás ele correu os vendilhões do tempo ao pontapé porque não se queria converter ao capitalismo. Será que, entretanto, se resolveu render aos encantos dos frigoríficos da Samsung a ponto de ser o relações públicas desta marca?
