With Christmas just around the corner preparations are well under way for the festive illumination
With Christmas just around the corner preparations are well under way for the festive illumination of the streets of Palma. However, there's a slight difference this year as the town hall are
installing 484 enormous metal posts to support all the decorations.
The posts not only eliminate the need for lots of overhead cabling but are much safer than before as there is no need to use balconies and facades of buildings to support the lights - as our
photo care of the Spirit of Christmas past shows. The council also point out that money will also be saved this year because this method is more energy efficient and requires less council
workers to install and maintain it.
The big switch on of the Christmas lights will take place on Friday 3rd December.
