Dundee to hold Winter Light Festival

Scottish city Dundee is aiming to celebrate a festive season with a difference as its winter revelry this time around will include no references to Christianity.

In order to make the festive period more open to those of different cultures and beliefs, Dundee has announced that it will be holding a winter festival aimed at celebrating the city’s contemporary culture and welcoming all types of revellers.

Amidst the celebrations in the central Scotland city will be a “Winter Light Night”, which invites attendees to enjoy breathtaking displays of illuminations that are projected onto buildings and into the night sky, as well as audiovisual displays, street art performances, music and a children’s torchlit procession.

Instead of a traditional Christian nativity scene, Dundee is shifting its focus to be more welcoming to people with different or no religious views and will set up a solar-powered disco, a circus, a continental market and even have a fairy on stilts entertaining crowds.

Sounds like the United States.

So… this story comes from Best Western… hotels? There’s no AP or Reuters source mentioned, do they really have a staff of reporters? :confused:
