Check out this Christmas light display on a 4-bed house in Longford Road, Melksham, Wiltshire.

Isn’t it incredible?

Now I’m from Essex, and the Essex folk do know a thing or two about putting on a Christmas light display ;)   However, without a shadow of a doubt, this is the most dazzling display of lights that I’ve seen in my life!

Look at the front driveway!

And while you’re standing at the gates, gawping at the lights, you suddenly realise that you’re covered in snow. Low and behold, you look up to discover that there’s a snow machine attached to the top of the garden gate.   It’s madness!

This incredible display, which has around 180,000 bulbs (!) is the handy work of 28 year old Alex Goodhind. He worked for six weeks to get the display up and running and, for the most of that time, I imagine he was working in the rain. (It’s been raining here in the South West for what seems like months now!)

As well as brightening up the town and bringing a smile to our faces, Alex is hoping that the display will raise lots of money for Dorothy House Hospice. You can read more about Alex’s story here.

The display is on until the end of December, so if you’re in the vicinity of Melksham, go check it out!

Did you make your house light-fantastic this Christmas?
We put a string of fairy lights on the steps leading up to the front door. Maybe we’ll go for a glowing reindeer or two on the front lawn next year ;)
