Our win­dows into a time of won­der

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE spirit of Christ­mas has taken on new mean­ing for Kirsten Cle­mens and Rhys Stan­ley as they gear up to cel­e­brate their first fes­tive sea­son with son Jag­gar.

The cou­ple al­ready have plans to make a trip to the Myer Christ­mas win­dows an an­nual fam­ily tra­di­tion, with Cle­mens get­ting a sneak pre­view at Gee­long’s dis­play yes­ter­day.

The win­dows, which form part of the Cen­tral Gee­long Christ­mas Trail, will be un­veiled at 5pm to­day, ahead of the Gala Day Pa­rade at 7.30pm.

This year’s theme is the chil­dren’s book One Christ­mas Eve, by Corinne Fenton and Mar­jorie Crosby-Fairall.

“It looks amaz­ing, there is so much colour and, of course, Christ­mas lights, which truly get you into the Christ­mas spirit,” Cle­mens said.

“They’re go­ing with Mel­bourne’s most iconic sites as a back­drop in the win­dow, so that’s re­ally sen­ti­men­tal as well.

“I have al­ways gone to look at the Myer Christ­mas win­dows in the past with my friends’ kids, so now it’s so nice to have one of my own.

“Jag­gar loves look­ing at colour and lights, so he is go­ing to ab­so­lutely love it.

“It will be very, very spe­cial for Rhys and I.”
