Right in the center of town, at the Central World Shopping Center, famous as the one that was burned partially in the 2010 riots and occupation by Red Shirts, is this sad scene. The huge Central World Christmas tree, lopped on half with the massive Teddy Bear, that was cheerfully placed climbing on the tree during the holiday season, now lying upside down, lifeless amidst strewn branches, large ornaments and a Thai Airways promotional sign. At first I thought they were disassembling the decorations, but it was Jan 13 and it's still there today Jan 21. We took this picture from the third floor Skywalk entrance and it was hard to explain what happened to the Teddy Bear to our 3-year-old.
