With only two days left until Christmas and no doubt, so much to do, it may well be worthwhile catching your breath and using this Sunday for a moment of pause.
The consumer frenzy of Christmas too often obscures its other meanings or even the gentler invitation for all to use the holiday as a time of reflection.
But in all this impatience, cupidity and excess, it is uplifting to say the true spirit of the Ballarat community still shines.
We are pleased to relay just a few of these stories of unstinting generosity, good will and calm from Ballarat people. A tonic in a the world that otherwise seems to have gone crazy.
And in that spirit we would also like to offer our own small token of appreciation for your loyalty as subscribers.
We have two special gifts to give away for you this Christmas.
Open to subscribers only, we have some special events coming up in the new year:
- 2 VIP admission tickets to the Burrumbeet Cup on New Year’s Day (ENTER HERE)
- 2 family passes to the Alice in Wonderland production at the Wendouree Performing Centre on January 9 (ENTER HERE)
From all at The Courier we would like to wish you a safe and happy Christmas.
