So, I went into the city, what else is a single guy, to do on Chirstmas Eve? Well, to my finding. The city was packed, and this was around 10PM. It was great, so many people out, I was in a rather peaceful mindset, and took a few pictures. The State Library of Victoria, and some massive church down on Flinder's (across from Federation Square) both have had projections of holiday animations for the past few night (possibly longer). Anyways, I was just surprised at all the people out. It didn't even seem like a holiday, just another, rather decent/temperate night. I have some pics from the past two nights up on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/matt-davis
What I find funny, is that the explicit use of the term "Merry Christmas" all over the city, such as Flinder's Street Station and light pole flags. No political correctness bullcrap, just straight up Merry Christmas, no Happy Holidays. I find that nice. But ultimately, and this is key: May this be a holiday season that escapes the religion that bounds it.
