It was very busy when I was in Sydney last week. People were busy shopping and it felt very festive. Here are some Christmassy photos I took around the city.
I saw many girls and boys selling reindeer headgear (?) to raise funds (above). The headgears were tied around their waists, making them look as if they were wearing green and red skirts.
At the Queen Victoria Building (QVB), the Christmas tree reaches from the ground level to the top.
The top of the tree is adorned with a star. And the tree trunk is covered with crystals. The tree is made of lots and lots of Swarovski crystals and lights. If you are interested, here’s more info on the tree, plus a video on how the tree was built.
(The QVB is a gorgeous building – I will share more photos later)
At the Strand Arcade, the glitz of their Christmas decoration is overwhelming.
A Berry Christmas tree…
And Christmas wreaths
At the Rocks, the stall holder joins in the spirit of Christmas with a Santa hat… He had a free moment, so he checked the details of the night’s Christmas party on his phone.
Out in the streets, monkeys wear hats too, but one has lost his already… and it’s not even Christmas yet!
The Town Hall has a Christmas tree on its first floor balcony… It rained quite heavily one afternoon. I wonder about the state of the tree after the rain.
The train station is looking Christmassy too.
4 more sleeps to go :). Hope you are having fun baking/cooking and planning for Christmas.
