Neat not gaudy. Nice.


Comment by Mick on 21st December 2010 at 10:11
Not gaudy ah ah ah.

Its tacky and its got to much of a mixture and completely over the top, better to have less and stick to one theme.

Im glad I dont live opposite


Comment by John on 21st December 2010 at 10:14
Lovely, but not so nice when the electricity bill drops through the letter box.


Comment by Kells on 21st December 2010 at 10:15
Iím just wandering how much electricity bill will be! And I bet you would radiation burns from the meter! Lovely photo.


Comment by Cordyline on 21st December 2010 at 10:31
Nice shot JH, did you use a tripod ?


Comment by Mick P. on 21st December 2010 at 13:31
Another good jigsaw?
No too difficult with all that black.
Great photo though.


Comment by Mick P on 21st December 2010 at 13:34
I like the 'Star of Bethelehem' from the street lamp.


Comment by Catherine on 21st December 2010 at 16:19
I wonder how many bulbs weren't working when they got the lights out!


Comment by ann-spam on 21st December 2010 at 16:32
good picture i have been down to see this house i think he has a contract with wallpaper supplies in wigan .


Comment by John H on 21st December 2010 at 17:03
Reply to Cordyline, yes i did use a tripod. For those of you that have children [once the snow has gone]. Take them to see this beautiful masterpiece, it will stay in your childrens thoughts for ever. Great to see the eyes of children when they see this house. Thanks again to all

Comment by Responsible on 22nd December 2010 at 09:47
How unutterably vulgar, and how irresponsible, given the present economic and cosmic climate.


Comment by mother christmas on 22nd December 2010 at 17:29

Comment by Ste Wigan on 22nd December 2010 at 18:57

Comment by Mick P on 23rd December 2010 at 08:37
Responsible, unless you do your washing in the dougie,use candles and don't use any electicity or gas, unless renewable, go and hug a tree.


Comment by JohnB on 23rd December 2010 at 22:04
Is that Santa hiding by the right gate post?


Comment by Jeanette on 22nd January 2011 at 19:01
The people of this house actually have been doing this for a long time and they have a donation box that they give to charity, Derian house i last heard. I think it is fabulous and they have there own generator i am lead to believe. Don't diss the house. Enjoy it as hundreds of people have in the past and will in the future. My sis lives in the street and i never tire of seeing the lights i luv it when they are on makes you feel all warm inside :) Well done to the family for doing this!!!!!!!


Comment by Elaine on 3rd February 2011 at 22:26
I missed this pic at Christmas. It is wonderfully in the Spirit of Christmas. Yes, they might have a big electricity bill. Yes, it is over the top. But, it certainly cheers and warms the heart at the Christmas season. Love they have a donation box for charity also. Hope everyone has a Happy 2011.


Comment by colin derricott on 5th March 2011 at 15:59
take the kids here every year they love it. and its 4 a good cause


Comment by chris on 23rd June 2012 at 23:56
love it, love it, love it!!
the winter nights are so long and miserable, and during christmas time
these lovely lights and trees etc give us some cheer for a few weeks.
It's not harming anybody,and there are worse things going on around the world.Keep it up!


Comment by ben on 22nd November 2012 at 02:32
i actually live back to back with this house, and i have to say they're a bloody nightmare, haha.
every year we get blinded for at least a month.

they're not the best people to live near
