Friday Flash..Nagoya Station Christmas Lights 2008

Once again the Christmas Illuminations are burning brightly around Nagoya Station.This first shot shows the big display above the main entrance.

This shot shows in more detail the Christmas town scene that is illuminated.It gradually builds up with more and more lights and buildings lit up and slowly fades away.At its height the scene includes small figures with Father Christmas and his sleigh appearing in a star filled sky.The whole cycle seems to last a couple of minutes at most and drew many "uhs" and "ahs" from the warmly clad crowds below.

Just as many people seemed to be visiting the well lit area to the left of the station.As with last years display its a kind of illuminated garden with lit up teddy bear figures featuring prominently.

There were other smaller lit animals and creatures including this butterfly.

This final shot shows people walking around the garden and through a greenish-yellow archway.If you look closely you can probably pick out at least two or three illuminated bears among the dazzling lights.

The Christmas season has come to mean the period when the public plays Santa Claus to the merchants.

Nothing's as mean as giving a little child something useful for Christmas.
