Christmas Lights



Christmas Lights at Bowers Road South, Everton Hills


My favourite!


 Family and friends!



Dorrington Drive, Ashgrove

Last night was a wonderful evening, my sister, a friend and I took our children to see some Christmas lights.  We went to Bowers Road South, Everton Hills first.  Oh my goodness I shrieked with delight when we entered the street, I could not believe this one house which I think would be set on a acre or two of land, had come to life, it was truly spectacular.  The children were really excited, there is so much to see and as Mia said "it is a fairy land of lights".  If you are hungry they even have a sausage sizzle.  We then went to Maundrell Tce, Aspley, there is a church that is spectacular as well, we did not get out of the car as it was getting late and we wanted to go to Dorrington Drive, Ashgrove, another spectacular display of lights.  

I asked my sister "what does this remind you of", she replied Ivanhoe in Melbourne.  When we were young Mum and Dad would take us to this one particular street in Ivanhoe a suburb in Melbourne and all the houses would have gorgeous lights and decorations.  A wonderful cherished memory we will always have.

If you are into Christmas lights, I highly recommend you go!

Thank you for all your beautiful, thoughtful comments over the past few weeks, it really means so much to me!

Happy Wednesday to you!  xxx

  2. Hello Miss Mimi

    Oh thank you for the tip off - we will try to go and see them in all the hectic pace here. I will have to try to find the address for you at tingalpa I saw last year - is was amazing and so worth it.

    I can't believe the talent of some people and the big picture they see to decorate so beautifully.

    Have a wonderful day,

  5. Wow - the lights are beautiful. Some people really get into it don't they? I remember the street in Ivanhoe when I grew up in Melbourne. I wonder if they still do it? There was always footage at the end of the news. My next door neighbour has a good display. My piddly 6 solar lights don't really match up. Must make more effort next year.

  6. Hi Mimi, Congrats on passing, knew you would !!!. Have you started your assignment yet ???. The lights look great we normally go to the one at Everton Hills too and there are a few great ones out our way as well, that won 2nd and 3rd in the 4KQ lights comp. We actually did the Christmas light thing last night too, the kids love it.

  13. Great vacation might be your dream. Travel to Bali is not always expensive as there are many international flights providing special rates for early bird booking. There are also many selection of Bali hotels offering special discount rates including Bali villas and budget Bali accommodation

  14. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
