Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Some say it might be a lit­tle early to dis­cuss Christ­mas, but I’ve been ready for the fes­tive sea­son since the mid­dle of the year when I was lucky enough to see the Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val.

Yes, I ad­mit it, I’m one of those peo­ple who put up their dec­o­ra­tions on De­cem­ber 1. I even wear Christ­mas ear­rings and might even find a Christ­mas themed pen this year. So with this in mind, I was very ex­cited to hear the Bay­leys Christ­mas lights tour is back again for 2015.

Mata­mata res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to put to­gether a light dis­play on and around their homes for the pub­lic to see in De­cem­ber. There are al­ways a hardy group of peo­ple who get in­volved but we’d love to see new fam­i­lies get into the Christ­mas spirit this year. To­gether with Bay­leys and Mitre 10, the Chron­i­cle is also ask­ing Mata­mata busi­nesses to sprin­kle a lit­tle Christ­mas joy around their stores this fes­tive sea­son. See page 10 for more de­tail, but please get in­volved, Christ­mas only comes around once a year.
