No expense spared On road going into town centre I saw this and decided you should see it It's festive And it shows people how to write the name Montrose. It's educational. And embarrassing that it is all my home town can do in this regard. I will post more Oh yes more pictures Does your town or city do stuff like this

Christmas lights is what we will have starting December 6th, but we have nothing like that. I think that people know how to spell the name of our place.

@JimBo452020 December 6th is St.Nicholas, Patron Saint of Switzerland and kids put their clogs outside to receive some little gifts. This is why we start to decorate on that day.

Some streets do have decorations like these in time of the holidays. Not sure if they necessarily spell out the name of the borough, neighborhood, or street though.

The city I live in doesn't do much in the way of festive lights and decorations, but one of our largest hospitals in the city sets up a huge display of lights and decorations around a pond and gardens they have next to the hospital. And of course many homeowners go way above and beyond to decorate their houses and yards with festive decorations.

I don't know if this street is residential or shop fronts but I'm reminded of how the front doors of so many houses open straight on to the street.

It seems like a "quiet" town. It would be good to walk the streets during early morning or late evenings. I see no moving cars? is it this peaceful always? The scene here in our city is not so 'serene' .

That's cool to see part of your town. The closest town to us is two miles away and only has about 600 people. The town council puts Christmas wreaths up on the light poles, but that's about all. Oh, and they've resumed the Christmas parade after Covid stopped it.
