Sadly certain parts of Swansea are more lit up than anywhere!!! Of course they also happen to be in the areas where the Lidl stores are!!!

They have become so infamous that they now run coach tours to see some of the houses!!!

Thank God I don't live anywhere near them - nice to see though!!!

Been quite a few nasty fires lately though - 5 people killed in just one incident- a real tradgedy. MAY not have been the lights but quite likely.

3 kids under 10 - that is so tragic. I am anal about my Christmas tree lights and switch them off when I retire and when I leave the house. Just don't trust them.

Amazing what our pikey friends can do with a few garish lights and 240 volts coming straight off the streetlights. Makes you wonder what they did to celebrate before neon was invented - probably rubbed themselves with dogshit and set light to their hair...
