Just looked at all the Christmas Day P-a-D`s. The one for 2007 is interesting to compare with today`s. As eric commented " wouldn`t like to pay the electric bill."
Thanks, Brian, this site must be one of the best.

Merry Christmas to you Brian, and to all the people who make this web page the best ever

Comment by: Al on 25th December 2014 at 21:47

I think people can look at this two ways: just someone who loves Christmas pure and simple, or someone who is wanting too much attention and trying to show off. When I see houses almost covered from top to botton with decks and lights like this it just screams attention seeking, and I know I'm a gonna be called a xmas hater but I'm not because Christmas is a great time for families to get together, but this takes the biscuit. I doubt many struggling families or the elderley who can just barely afford to put the electric fire or central heating on this festive season will be thinking of lighting up their home like the illuminations. I wonder how long the electric would last with one of those top-up meters. I haven't seen anything on this scale in my area, although there is a house that's not far off. There's also that bungalow on Lily Lane near Bryn Hall (adjacent to Viridor Wood) that is lit up just like this every year.

Thank you Brian for all your hard work throughout the year.
I take my Grandchildren to see this house every year, it's become a tradition,as much as mice pies. The people who own the house deserve a thnk you for all their hard work too.

Comment by: David on 25th December 2014 at 22:08

Thanks Brian.
Merry Christmas everyone.

Comment by: Hugh Wilson on 26th December 2014 at 01:05


Mice pies??? Surely not. Good picture though.

Christmas is a normal working day here in Nantong, but we do get a holiday for Lunar New Year/Spring Festival in February.

Comment by: Ellen on 26th December 2014 at 07:01

This is a lovely display.-it made me remember my first Christmas Eve in Canada, in 1966. On a clear cold evening we were walking along the street a little way to visit family.The houses were all lit (no great displays,just strings of lights at the rooflines and doorways),someone had carols playing
on a record player on their porch.(remember those,anyone?)Suddenly,it began to snow,just lightly. It was all so beautiful,then suddenly I was intensely homesick for the first time and started to cry!
---Oh the memories!

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 26th December 2014 at 07:18

Tom. Wouldn`t like to eat those pies!!
Friends of mine have mice in their house and have paid £200 for professional help to have them exterminated.

Comment by: Lizziedownunder on 27th December 2014 at 02:08

Hope it was a lovely day for all...a little late here...but better late than never I say...all the very best to all for the New Year...Cheers!! xx

Comment by: Ellen on 27th December 2014 at 18:19
