I don’t remember seeing all these Santa Clauses climbing up the window when I was a child. The only Santa I ever saw was in David Jones department store in my home town of Townsville. Note the pun on the Krys Optician’s window!

Je n’ai pas le souvenir d’avoir vu un tas de pères noël en train de grimper sur les maisons lorsque j’étais petite. Le seul père noël que j’ai jamais vu se trouvait à l’intérieur du grand magasin de David Jones dans ma ville natale de Townsville. Notez le jeu de mots chez l’opticien Krys.

    I first saw them when we did a Danube cruise in Dec 2006. I loved them. They would look quite silly here in our heat.
    Lots of things have changed since we were children. Christmas lights is the big one.

      There are more Christmas lights or less?

        I remember travelling in LA in 1976, and seeing all the decorated houses. There were none here. I would say their growth has been in the last 10 years. Just about every street has at least one house lit up to some degree. My choir sing Christmas carols on a street [about 2 kms long] and 90% of the houses are decorated. A link to 2013 carols.

      It’s a very popular configuration here!

    Dangling Santas are a particularly French thing I think you’ll find. There is good sport to be had by noting how long they stay up. 6 months is not unusual.

      I’ll have to check this one out each time we go to the market.
