Getting into the Christmas spirit, Camberwell’s powers that be have tried to create a festive atmosphere to attract customers to the main shopping precinct.
However, the “White Christmas” motif that adorns one of the paths between Burke Rd and the massive car park behind all the shops has brought mixed reviews from Camberwellians.
“It’s cheap and nasty!” said Daisy, whose expectations were possibly a little too high as the previous night she went into the city and saw a dazzling video display on the front of a building. Many tourists recorded the action on their phones as apparently, they were not happy with the 3D version of the display using their own actual eyes.
Other shoppers are happy with the decorations, ” When you look at one it sucks, but when you look at all them as a whole I guess it looks ok,” explained Harold. ” You can’t blame people for trying, I saw some tinsel on a police car at Camberwell police station which will make criminals feel a little happier that they aren’t being left out of the celebrations.”
As finding the perfect gift now reaches fever pitch, Camberwell’s “White Christmas” alley is a reminder to every shopper that walks through it that now is their chance to make someone’s dreams come true or risk the unique lack of respect that comes when buying someone you love a really crap present.
