I took photos how Sheree and Robert, the winner of “The Best Christmas Light in Brisbane” progressed setting up the Xmas light last year (2015).
They are my neighbours. I walk pass everyday with my dogs.
They siad that they started planning this Christmas light from February. It is amazing amount of time and efforts they put in for this amazing display. I started taking photos of their house from October through to the Christmas time.
I remembered one day in December last year, a strong storm hit our neighbourhood and their display and house got damaged. They worked very hard to restore the display and their family and friends came to help. I helped them a little bit, too.
Sheree and Robert told me how they started Xmas light;
“A little boy who was a neighbour was watching from his bedroom window daily waiting for the lights to come on. We were feeling a little despondent that year and thought it all too much trouble, but when his Mum told us about him sitting at his window it changed us. ”
Their motivation was for someone else. Who could put so much energy and effort for other people?
Beautiful story behind of beautiful Xmas light.
This year, they are decorating their home again and it is little bit different to last year.
Please visit their home and have a look at the lights. The lights will be on from Tuesday 6th of December.
