Christmas Lights

Many people decorate their house and garden with Christmas Lights each year and it is a real treat to drive around viewing amazing fantasies. Many Councils actually publish a suggested guide tour. We spent last night at Howlong NSW on the Murray River, not far from Albury, visiting Rowan, our Son and Grandson, Hunter. After dinner he took us to see an absolutely amazing home which would delight any child or grown-up children like us. If you live in that area, it is worth a drive to 108 Bank Street, Howlong.  The Crump Family are to be commended for their contribution every year and this year is a Christmas Fairyland. I believe that Peter Crump takes 3 weeks off work just to set all this up. We thank you for taking that time, it is very much appreciated by everyone who visits! I asked Margaret Crump permission to share with you and she said that they both enjoyed giving something back to the community and the Donation Box of appreciation is given to local charities.
THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS!
It is a long blog, but I didn't know which photos to leave out, 
just couldn't, so showed most I took. 
 Welcome to our Christmas Fairyland!
The Pathway Entrance
Along the Pathway
A little taste of Australiana
A moving See-Saw, actually up and down!
Another Pathway through the centre of their garden
Most of the lights flash on and off, very pretty
Tri-fold sparkling Santa
All their trees were decorated
Note all the leads, everything was connected and flashing
Going to the North Pole?
The front of their House with the family sitting outside
Their Garage included a snow-making machine. See children playing in front of it getting covered in "snow" to their delight - a rarity in Australia
Santa stuck in the Chimney
Animated Santa with music too
Another animated Santa
The side window of the house was a real treat - inside their home
The front window of their house with truly amazing Christmas beauties - true royalty
Another view through the window

I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED
KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS A SMALL COUNTRY TOWN

I am quite sure their are others, equally as wonderful, but wanted to share this.
Photos don't do it justice, lights are hard to capture, particularly when they are flashing or moving.
In real life, it was magic!

    1. Oh yes indeed. The amazing thing also, was that Peter and Margaret (with their elderly Mum) sit out the front EVERY night and answer questions and answer any questions. Rowan said they do this every single year.
