Christmas Lights

One of my favourite things to do at Christmas time is to see the Christmas lights.  A couple of our regulars we used to go to every year have sadly stopped doing the lights so we have to find some new ones.  We went to one in our local area and the elderly fellow said he has been doing his house lights since 1999 so he was up for a chat with anyone that admired his lights.

We also went into the Roma Street Parklands to see The Enchanted Garden however so did thousands of other people and the queue was so long and a minimum of 1.5 hours to get in and more likely 2 hours so we ditched that idea and just walked around the gardens.  Last year was the first year they did this and it was a huge hit so they did it again this year and put over 20,000 lights in the Enchanted Garden.  To the left hand side of the entrance you could see an overview of the lights so we took some photos and selfies from there and then headed home.  Here's a few pics of some pretty Christmas lights this year.

    1. Yes...very popular and they only run for 8 days finishing tomorrow (Sunday 17th December) instead of all next week as well leading up to Christmas which they should be doing.

  2. I love to see all the Christmas lights that decorate our neighbourhood. Many houses have a sprinkling of lights and they are so twinkly and pretty. I expect the ones in at Roma St Parklands would be quite stunning but I'm afraid huge crowds and waiting so long would ruin the experience for me. Too busy! Meg:)
