It's Starting To Look A Bit Like Christmas

Pittwater Online News staff have been eagerly monitoring Santa's Sky Tracker on Air Services Australia and it seems the Elves and Santa are quite busy at present as there's only 18 days to go as we go to press. A stroll around the villages of Pittwater shows shops are dressing their windows up with all things Christmas and all look wonderful. 

At Elaine Avenue, Avalon Beach, residents have finished or begun decorating their homes and gardens with all sorts of lights and Santa decorations. One gentleman we spoke to said they haven't finished yet and will be doing more today, Sunday, as it's just what we all need after the challenges every one of us has faced this year. 

The first week of December is when many of us devote some time to cheering everyone up with great displays of lights, reindeer, or even outposts of Santa's toy Shop - as seen above. With Christmas Markets at Mona Vale today, December 6th, at Warriewood Boy Scouts selling Christmas Trees, Santa coming to The Newport on 7th, 14th & 21st December (11am to 1pm) and to Avalon shops during their late night shopping event (with music and tons of fun) on the 17th, everyone is getting into their red and green gear to cheer things up around here!

Some of what has been seen this week runs to gladden your eye and get you in the mood as this Issue's Pictorial.
