Do you remember the year that we got new Christmas lights? i.e. not just coluredy bare bulbs, but the whole show like in picture one? There was fierce excitement about it. It would have been late 70s/early 80s.

They've gone back to an old school proper Christmas tree on O'Connell St. in Dublin.
Proper order.
That weird glass one they had the last few years wasn't very Christmassy.

Wow, that last pic is a real throw back! Just remembering now when all the motorbikes used to park in the middle of Patricks Street. I'd say the tram tracks were still there at that point? And the old buses!
