a little Christmas in the city

towering through three levels of  Sydney's Queen Victoria Building, it's just the tip of the Swarovski Christmas tree
 
21 metres of Christmas in Martin Place, Sydney.  The lights keep changing colours...
 
 
one of several David Jones department store window displays
Later addition: they're koalas

John and Theresa --- they do look a bit like mice but I figure they've got to be an Aussie koala family
