This winter season (first time ever) city of Dubrovnik decided to put small wooden houses on main street Stradun in Old Town making quiet a controversy from past years. The huts among many others are selling prikle(small doughnuts), sausages, beans, hot wine and beer. Also this year’s Christmas décor and illumination has progressed visibly from previous years; children are joyfully playing around lustrous reindeer or sitting in the lap of an oversized golden teddy bear. Some locals find the huts being placed on Stradun a disgrace and the illumination tacky and tasteless. There are some exaggerated features (such as a giant Christmas ball right on the Pile entrance of Old Town) but overall the town is alive and it’s busier than ever in the past 10 years during this part of the year. What is wrong with a bit of gleam and sparkle once a year? After all it’s Christmas time!
