Look up in Brisbane in December, and you'll see stars. Specifically, wooden slats nailed into the shape of a five-point star, then wrapped up in lights.
Bay Curious listener Ashley Shively remembers seeing the displays while growing up. She says her father grew up in San Francisco and would always point out Brisbane's stars when they drove past.
But she never knew why the stars were there, so she asked:
Why do residents of the town of Brisbane put up five-pointed stars at the holidays?
To get to the scoop on the stars, I went to Brisbane's Festival of Lights. It's the city's official tree lighting, and the start of when the town lights all its stars.
