Santa needs a green suit

Christmas is a treat for the street. Perhaps not as sweet in Greece this year as in China. Here a photographer captures some decorations in Chinese shopping malls.

Christmas in the West, much like Diwali in India, stimulates seasonal economic activity. But I wonder if Santa has an estimate of the concomitant waste generated (through packaging and decorations, electricity and shopping splurges). A lot of innovative thought and technologies would have gone into making these "wonderful, weird and whacky Christmas trees". These creative energies, so abundantly found in our cities, should be used to splash in some green as we go around  painting the planet red. 

This Christmas tree is made from bicycles and can be lit up only manually by riding an attached bicycle. Photo by Raemin Zhang,
