Christmas is in the air in Sydney what with folks shopping, planning and generally getting ready for Christmas. The Town Hall will be lit up for four weeks reflecting the festive mood of the season. Wattle blossoms, kookaburras, blue bottles, flying foxes and echidnas –the images of Australia will be projected in a cycle on the magnificent facade of the Town Hall for twelve days to add to the colour and the general carnival atmosphere of the city!

The giant Christmas tree (21 metres tall) will be lit up with around 58,000 LED lights and over 300 seven pointed stars spreading the joy and spirit of Christmas!

Kids’ favourite entertainment shows will be performed live, and with Santa, carols, music, jazz bands and all, the season of Christmas is a season of fun for kids in Sydney! It’s, however, not just kids that have all the fun. There are numerous events for Christmas for the young and the youthful and all the rest! The fireworks are just about everybody’s favourite and while enjoying the fireworks of Christmas, folks at Sydney gear up for the fabulous fireworks of the New Year’s Eve that Sydney is famous for! Other options are dining, dancing and cruising – all with a dash of romance, of course!

Like everything else in Sydney, Christmas celebrations , with their Australian themes and Sydney attitude, have that special tang that is unique to Sydney!

Some forethought in organising an office Christmas party

At long last, the time has come for year-end office parties – the time for breaking the ice, barriers, resentment, rivalry and all other negative forces that are sometimes rampant and almost always inevitable in an office atmosphere.

Surely that’s enough reason to give some forethought and consideration before you organise the most eagerly awaited event of the year! Let’s look into some pre-requisites while organising an office party, or any party for that matter, that we have to be mindful of.

The age groups of the guests is an important factor to be considered before organising every aspect of the party, be it fun and games, music and dance, food and beverage menu or the dress code. There should be something that caters to or appeals to every age group.

Whether the catering should be buffet style or whether silver service should be provided depend greatly on the age groups of the guests. It would be ideal to have both styles of service to ensure that all are comfortable.

Where would you have the party – a place that is trendy and happening or one that is serene and tranquil? Is the place easily accessible and is there parking facility that is convenient for all prospective guests? Besides the location, the time and date of the party should also be generally convenient.

Choosing a colour for dress code would make it flexible enough so that the guests can wear clothes that they feel comfortable in and choose clothes that they would love to wear, for, part of the fun unarguably lies in dressing up for the party! A flexible theme code would equally suit the purpose.

Last but never the least, give most, if not each, of your staff members some significant role in the party to make them feel they belong.

And as a closing note, if you have to put all of this together properly and in time, you had better plan well ahead!

What would you like to buy this Christmas – something arty, something trendy, or something that’s a bit of both? Or would you like to collect something offbeat, quaint, or outlandish? Or, to put it simply, would you like to buy something oh-so-different from the usual conventional stuff?

Just hit Glebe Point Road on November 15th where will be held the annual Glebe Street Fair. Books and painting, art and jewellery, candles and toys, crafts and carvings, clothing and rugs, artefacts and curios  and a thousand other strange but interesting odds and ends will be on offer along with food and fun and a lot of entertainment, what with all the buskers and the clowns!

There will be no traffic plying the road from Broadway to Bridge Road but only shoppers hunting for that special thing that they have always wanted to buy but couldn’t find anywhere else! While the adults go crazy over the knickknacks on offer, the kids can freak out on the joy rides and the fun games!

Glebe Street Fair – the right place for just the right gifts for the right people!
