There’s a mystery afoot in Vancouver and it’s not “who is going to foot the bill for the Olympics.”

Some anonymous and crafty person – or perhaps a team of elves – created a bunch of seasonal red and white Santa hats and matching scarfs for our friendly, laughing figures down at Morton Triangle near English Bay.

The day before Christmas the hats and scarfs appeared on our chilling bronze friends.  Truly, an A-Mazing occurrence.

If anyone knows who created these colourful clothes for Yue Minjun’s A-Mazing Laughter, please let me know.  We love the idea and would like to thank whoever did this with a special, tho belated, Holiday gift.
