Hello, everyone, and welcome once again to CCEN’s ChristmasWatch 2012. I’m Winter Clearlight, and, to check the clock, we are just three weeks, 21 days, from the big day itself. People couldn’t be more excited! And here at Christmas Central, we are keenly aware of those rising expectations. We are seeing a wave of enthusiasm and eagerness in people visiting our store that even our best expectations didn’t predict. And even as we work tirelessly, we couldn’t be happier that so many of you are eager for the season to come.
And with that, let’s take a moment to look at an unusual idea that created a wealth of giving down in Australia. As the Herald Sun reports, a street famous for its Christmas lights has chosen to light them with solar power this year. The idea grew out of a joke one of the residents made, and grew to a world first for Christmas. Borgnis St in Davidson, in Sydney, is famous for its Christmas decorations, and draws spectators every year. This year they have raised over a quarter of a million dollars for a charity for terminally ill children. And making it a green Christmas are the solar panels donated by a local company.
If the idea of making your Christmas, or indeed any of your decorating, just a bit more green is appealing to you, then you might find looking at our selection of solar powered items a good choice. Many of these items are outdoor decorations rather than specifically Christmas themed, but our favorite holiday is still present. From such nice items as a snowflake accent for outdoor flags, and even a outdoor Christmas Tree that is powered by the sun alone.
So join in, and you can make your Christmas both a white one(if the weather cooperates) and a green one at the same time! This is Winter Clearlight, pointing out that we are also 2 days into the traditional Advent Calender. Christmas season is well underway every place you look. And that’s the way Christmas is.
