Re: new Christmas lighting at Bahnhofstrasse Zürich

I understand why the last ones were not universally popular. I guess they were a bit radical and modern for some.

I actually liked them, partly for the technological aspects. I am equally looking forward to seeing the new ones at Christmas. They seem to be a good combination of modern and traditional.
I thought the old lights were really cool, but can see that they did not fit to some christmassy stereotype.

What I think they could do is have the modern 'xmas' lights up 11 months of the year, which gave an interesting feel to bahnhofstrasse and the traditional xmas lights up over the xmas period.

Everybody's happy

(except the taxpayers who pay for the extra electricity costs, environmentalists and those who plain old loathed the lights)
