The best ever

My grandson had to show us this house with the "best ever" Christmas light display. Have a look and see if you think he's right.

As we drove up, you couldn't mistake which house he meant. It was lit up with lights of all kinds. I couldn't capture them all with my camera.

There was a giant Christmas tree,

A gingerbread house in their driveway  
You could look through the windows to see the people inside with their tree. There was a larger than life Santa to greet everyone and wish them a Merry Christmas. There were trees sparkling with lights.

But the best was yet to come. . .
Around the corner you could enter the garden through a lit archway and the special magic began.

Throughout the garden were hidden the twelve days of Christmas - each handcarved and painted, lit by small spotlights. The children had to make sure they found them all.

Down a pathway, in his own grotto sat the Grinch in his cave.

A giant book told the story of the Night Before Christmas - with a tiny scene set in behind the pages.

Even at night you could tell, the garden itself was spectucular....  of course I tried to take some photos but the garden was just the backdrop and it was too dark. The real magic was happy faces, pointing, showing their parents, eyes wide as they made their next discovery, around every bend something new to wonder at.

Apparently, this couple have been opening their garden to the local children for many years. Can you image how many happy memories they have created?
I think my grandson was right.

Merry Christmas .

  1. OH WOW that is fantastic. THere is a house around the corner that the neighbourhood children flock to each christmas, it is quite like that - although this year they haven't done anything. I think they must have moved away :(

  5. WOW!! That's really cool! That must have been a ton of work to set up/take down but I'm sure many local kids have wonderful memories thanks to their kindness.
