Are Christmas light switch-ons really that important these days?
Southampton doesn’t even bother and generally people either complain that councils don’t spend enough, or are blowing their taxes on a massive Christmas tree and lights.
But after being on stage in Gosport at Saturday’s switch-on, I’m glad the town does make an effort.
Hundreds of families all together, watching the celebrations unfold, screaming kids welcoming The X Factor contestants The Brooks and carol singing all added to the festive occasion.
For all of the above, I would like to say a big thank you for coming and keep spreading that positive vibe. Such occasions should be embraced.
