@Kat In Serbia they do, Belgrade spent more money on decorations this year than ever before. Novi Sad looks beautiful right now, with all the decorations, stands, chariot rides, lights, “Frozen forest” (ice skating area made in a park in the center). But there are some movements that ask of their local governments to cancel public celebrations, events and decorations financed by the state and redirect that money to charity. Kakanj municipality in B&H already did that and became a role model or those movements.
