This year, Christmas decorations are being given a red tint.

“We want to give our guests the opportunity to have a festive atmosphere, to feel as though they are at the Christmas table, with a festive feeling, as opposed to just sitting there,” said John Murphy, chief executive of Ramada Dublin.
The hotel has had a range of decorations on display for years, including Christmas trees and a replica of the famous Christmas tree.
It’s not clear what will happen to the red-tinted decorations when the hotel opens in January 2019.
Ramada is the first hotel in Ireland to feature a Christmas tree, and its new decorations include a replica, with the lights on top.
Dublin Mayor Joe McHugh said he was “appalled” at the “totally unnecessary” red tint being used on the Christmas tree decorations.
“This is a complete disregard for the wishes of the thousands of Dubliners and the millions of visitors who visit the city every year,” he said.
“It’s completely unnecessary and insulting to Dubliners, and the people of Dublin, who are enjoying this festive season.”
I have no idea how this is going to work in the future, I’m not sure how it’s going to be managed in the long-term.
“But at the moment, I think it’s a really bad idea.”
Mr Murphy said he had “no problem” with the idea of the hotel adding decorations to its existing decorations, but said it would need to be “thought through”.
“I don’t think it would be appropriate for the Christmas decorations in the hotel, but we will be looking at it and considering it,” he added.
“When we come to that point, then we will have a very good discussion about it.”
Dublin will not be the only Irish city to have Christmas decorations this year.
Dubliners will be able to enjoy a festive day at their own expense this year with a range on offer including a replica Santa Claus, the reaper and a tree of presents.
