December 19. Day 353. Christmas cracker

Of course through a  child's eyes, everything seems much bigger than it does when you are an adult. Who hasn't been back and found that the hill you remember as being something like a mountain is not much more than a speed bump? But I don't think this is the case here. I believe the Christmas windows just don't have the same scale and awesomeness they once did. The journey into the city to peer into those windows was once a pilgrimage. Now the windows seem like little more than a book merchandising opportunity. They are still a great beauty but it's just not the same. Christmas in the city is, however, an evolving feast and a delight for young and old. Tonight my mum, my son and I joined the massive crowd at South Bank for the fireworks before walking across the King George Square for the light show.We did briefly check out the windows and all agreed the main game had shifted. Still Christmas in Brisbane is a celebration even the biggest kid can be proud of.
