'Tisn't the season to be jolly

Dear Spurtle 

Oh joy! The Dome superbar/restaurant on George Street has done it again. With a mere 48 days to go until Saturnalia, six iridescent boa constrictors have the great Corinthian columns in the grip of their deadly coils. 

How befitting a salute to such as Essential Edinburgh and our visionary City councillors in cynically promoting the Disneyfication of the city centre at Christmas, and in hastening the likely de-classification of Edinburgh's World Heritage status.
