Why the backlash towards David Heilpern?

I am visiting friends in Byron this week and looking at the letters section in The Echo I was...

I love Xmas. Tho I wouldn’t call myself religious, I celebrate Xmas as a time for giving and receiving- and not just presents, but also love, peace and gratitude.

I’ve noticed that recently the streets of both Mullumbimby and Byron Bay have no street decorations that have given smiles and fun to so many- young and old, over the years.
And I was just wondering why?
It seems that this year there are fewer delighted smiles and excited children. Has everyone’s Xmas spirit been spirited away?
Even me, as a twelve-year-old, sees how less merry people seem in Mullumbimby and Byron Bay this year. Where’s the Xmas cheer?
Please put Xmas decorations up next year! Cheer up, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year,
Rhiannon Bray-Narai, Coorabell
