Nice showcase cardiff.

Why is it unusual to see Christmas signs? it's not too early really. I think most places start putting up Chrissy signs around this time.

I did enjoy my time in Brum, its surprising what the New library and Cube have done to improve my impression of the city.

Not unusual to see the christmas signs, but unusual to see one the says "Merry Christmas", in Cardiff a similar sign was taken down as it was deemed insensitive to non christian minorities who would feel excluded!
