This house in Dublin has it by the bucketload. Source: Shauna WhiteSean White from Palmerstown first started putting up Christmas lights (simple strings of bulbs around the windows) about 20 years ago , and his display has only gotten bigger and brighter since then.He told canada goose that it takes the whole month of November to plan out and set up the display:In September, if Dublin are in the All Ireland final, I’ll paint the house the Dublin colours. That comes down on Halloween, the Halloween stuff comes up, and the day after Halloween, I start the Christmas lights.The switching on of the lights has even become a bit of a neighbourhood tradition. Last Friday, dozens gathered to watch him light up the house:Every year we have a big ‘switch on’ and invite over all our neighbours and friends. We get out the mulled wine and mince pies and all the kids get selection boxes. We must have given out around 56 or 57. Some of White’s ‘Christmas Village’ inside the house Source: Shauna WhiteThe lights , as you may expect, are extremely popular with the children of the neighbourhood.A kid that lives around the corner won’t go to bed until he comes around to see the lights every night, come rain, hail or shine.Since 2011, he’s been asking visitors to help him raise money for charity – this year, for the second year in a row, White is fundraising for Dylan, a little boy with cerebral palsy who lives in the area. Spot the Christmas Whale!
