Chance to switch on big show
AS THE song says, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
The first week of December is when the festive spirit really kicks in as people drag out their decorations, put up their Christmas trees and festoon their homes with lights.
When it comes to lights, my motto has always been less is a waste of time.
For inspiration I look to Clark Griswold, family patriarch from the 1989 film Christmas Vacation.
This year, NewsLocal will again celebrate those who go all out to light up their homes for Christmas.
We’ll publish maps in pa- pers and online so you can see the best festive displays in your neighbourhood.
If someone near you has a great display, let us know by emailing editor@mtdruitt standard.com.au.
collect money for charities so please give generously.
It is, after all, the season of giving.
Journo Jack can’t get enough of Christmas lights.
