Christmas

Countdown at the Clock Tower

By Jennifer Drury

Christmas is getting closer!

But, the famous Clock Tower timepiece, suitably bedecked with lights for the season, ticks on regardless of the bustle around it.

Although, have you noticed, somehow the usual Christmas spirit seems to be a little lacking around the city at the moment.  Maybe there will be a late dash of merrymaking and fun as shoppers search for those last minute Christmas presents?

Did you know that the ball on the Clock Tower moves at certain times of the day.  Haven't seen it? Check it out in our Clock Tower section.

I think the clocktower would look better with white and blue flashing lights.
