Bargain Xmas Lights from Crazy Sales (Win Chrissy Lights!)

Stealthy Xmas Ninja

Christmas is coming, can’t you feel it?! The days are hot, the summer storms have started, I’ve bought cards and stamps and have started Chrissy shopping! School is making Christmas craft, learning carols for the end of year concert. The shops are getting busy with people browsing for the perfect gift or gifts. People are bitching about the “true” meaning of Xmas, spreading rumours about a war on it, negotiations between family factions have started to solve the annual dilemma of which meal where and with whom, and I had my first slice of Christmas fruit cake (you know the Lion’s ones with the icing that you get from the old lady at the card table at the local shops) at morning tea yesterday.

It’s time to get baking – gingerbread men, houses and all things ginger. Puddings should have been made by now, hanging around the house up until their Christmas lunch boiling up. I need to decide on an advent calendar for myself – I’ve been eyeing off the ones with booze in them. Mum’s bought a train with a Santa for around the base of her tree! I’ve wanted one all my life, and now we have one!

Oh and the kids (and me) are starting to beg to put up the tree! I’ll have to pull out my boxes of decorations soon to see what’s intact from last year, what needs replacing, and what I don’t really like. Then track down some bargains in purples and pinks to add to my collection! Untangling the lights is always on the list of things that shouldn’t be attempted on a forty degree day, and should be reserved for an air-conditioned room with a cold one in a novelty stubbie holder nearby.

The calendar is filling up, with dinners and drinks, and BBQs and pub crawls taking up the key dates for the next five weeks. The thoughts of “do I have enough outfits for this summer” is met with a no, and I’m ready to hit the shops next payday for a couple new frocks that suit the heatwave conditions we’re bound to have through til Valentine’s day.

Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights 2015 Eiffel Tower

While we can’t all have such spectacular lights displays as the ones at Hunter Valley Gardens in our front yards, but I love going around the streets in the leadup til Christmas looking at all the pretty lights! There can be a real festival atmosphere, with charity fundraisers and ice-cream vans on the busier streets!

    I’m in the process of building “Santas Grotto” out of discarded pallets. I’d love to jazz it up with a ton of fairy lights!

    Think Griswald’s, but bigger, better, more spectacular, most definitely able to be seen from the moon.

      Why stop at the moon? :p

    Lights that gently twinkle, not flashing vigorously in that vulgar fashion as so many do. In an array of gorgeous shades of purple & teal, in all the tree’s and gardens that surround our home.

      oooor subtle fairy garden?

    I would set them up in the big tree out the front of my house. I’ve always wanted to do that. A massive Christmas Tree! The neigbours would be impressed. A great competition, Merry Christmas!

      I’d like to steal the Swarovski tree from the QVB in Sydney!

    I would love any Christmas lights, because we don’t have any! We also need a new Christmas tree. We have an ancient one that is falling apart. My kids live with their Dad, so a tree isn’t such a big deal but I’d love to surprise them when they come home by having the outside lit up with fairy lights. Just in time for us to have our own ‘second’ Christmas.

      Aww that would be just lovely for you all!!

    I love blue/white lights, snow everywhere and with snow flakes flying around to make it feel like you are in the North Pole!

    It have to be a few streets away- no bright light at the front of mine or the neighbours- cars driving by- people stopping to look.., No thankyou or maybe if I win I will over come my Grinchness? :P

    I didn’t have a christmas tree last year (just moved to Sydney, no money) so we put up Christmas lights in the shape of a tree on the wall!

    My Magical Xmas light setup would be a lazer light projector onto our house with lights all set up around it with our big blow up santa as the focal point!!
