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.

Many homes

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.
