More Christmas lights

Here's a lovely bit of Christmas cheer!



The light display is on the house of Karl Beetson in Wellingborough - a bit too far for me to visit, sadly. However, this modern christmas custom has taken off around Britain and in Brittany too - the village of Quessoy is particularly well-known for its displays, complete with a signposted route and refreshments.

It's all come a very long way from that first lighted tree in New York. I'm feeling inspired for my parents' house this winter...

LOL! My mum entirely agrees with you, so it looks like the outdoor decorations on their house will be one star and some lights in one tree. But I may change her mind yet...
