Christmas. Sign of the times - The outstreched hand of Santa

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Christmas is a time for giving!

I spotted this Santa near my home, in the deep of 2010 recession. It was in the door of travel agency, which tried to lure people for vacation in warm sun and white sand. It was a tough time for airlines, travel agencies and unemployed. Even the people with jobs do not know, how long their company or employment will last.
