    A mayor of a town in Belgium has actually apologised after it has actually been declared his Christmas lights appeared like penises.

    The blue and white structures were expected to be candle lights – however rather residents have actually been sharing the images online, joking about their phallic shape.

    Mayor of Oudenburg, Anthony Dumarey, stated there had actually been ‘many reactions’ to the Christmas lights.

    ‘Of course, it was not our intention to install Christmas lights that remind people of a penis,’ he informed regional paper HLN.

    ‘But we do see the lighter side of the occurrence.

    ‘We were on a minimal spending plan, so our technical department created the lighting by itself.

    ‘In any case, we wanted to move away from the classic flame or candle-themed illumination.’

    Mr Dumarey described designers chose at the last minute a flame at the top of the white column of the candle light was cliché, and rather changed it with a blue ball.

    ‘I see the funny side of it myself,’ he included.

    ‘We really have to do that in these dark and difficult times.’

    At least 90 of the lights have actually been depended on the streets of the little seaside town.

    Oudenburg has a population of 9,000 individuals and is well-known for its Roman museum and escape space.

    Mr Dumarey pinned the blame on the spending plan, stating each decor cost the town €165 (£147) to make.

    ‘If we wanted to buy something instead, we would have to pay €500 each,’ he included.

    He stated the last decors were ‘not that big of a problem’.

    ‘A woman told me, laughing, that she would also like a big Christmas pecker at her door,’ he stated. 

    ‘Some individuals snap pictures with them with thumbs up.

    ‘It is certainly the most talked-about Christmas illumination in the country.’

    He stated he sees ‘no reason to remove or replace them’.
