After my earlier post, a discussion about Christmas reminded me if the spectacular display Halstead used to have every Christmas.
It was awesome, as a child with a religious mum, we’d go to the candlelight procession at the church, then go home via the causeway, which the most amazing part of the display.
But how times have changed, although I’ll not belittle the effort, the lights are fairly lacklustre compared.
The excuses proffered
- Health and safety
Yet the nearest town also under the same borough council and council tax payments is 10x better but equally no where near the legend of my childhood.
