Christmas tree in downtown Larnaka

With the glorious sunshine, blue skies and warm temperatures we're having this year it seemed somehow even more inappropriate to put it up so early. But I suppose it is only a little over a month until Christmas.

It's exactly the same as last year's tree, right down (or up) to that somewhat bizarre star-ish thing on the top:
