The City of Moreland has decided to dump its official Christmas decorations in 2017.

The council want to slowly transition into a more diverse celebrations program.

It’s the same council that supported an ‘anti-racism’ rally last week, a move which attracted fierce criticism from local businesses.

Tom Elliott has labelled the changes absolutely ridiculous.

‘Imagine if you’re a kid?! We’re not going to have Christmas this year, but we’re going to have the ‘Moreland Celebrations Program’!’ he said on 3AW Drive.
