The Bright Bright Lights of Amaroo

Last night I tried to crush my girlfriend’s insufferable christmas cheer by getting her to drive us around while I photographed Christmas light displays.

We planned to take in a variety of Canberra suburbs. But having begun in Amaroo there was nothing to be done but to finish it and three hours later we were still there.

So let this be a salute to the industrious denizens of Amaroo and their love of putting garish twinkly lights on their houses.

There’s a short video to give you a feel for the twinkle. Also a slideshow of some of the highlight houses. By no means is it every house in Amaroo to sport Christmas lighting.

On this happy note. I’m off until New Year’s Eve, so have a Merry Christmas and try to be pleasant to one another. Che and Kramer will be viciously moderating any of you who feel the need to carry on.

What’s Your opinion?

It must be related to the experience one has as a kid that sort-of implants the tone of christmas. First US Xmas was in Vermont, and Vermonters INVENTED Xmas, they really did! All those cards you get with the white houses and churchs with steeples and delicate trees etc, that’s Vermont. And it just felt really flat. You need cicadas, and the cricket.
