I'd hate to see the traditional carols done away with because they are an important and beautiful part of Christmas so I'm glad the mayor stayed with that tradition. Nevertheless, a "battle of the bands" located nearby sounds like a lot of fun! BATTLE of the bands? Now THAT is a kind of "war" I can get excited about. :-) Merry Christmas to you all.
