MT WARRIGAL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS TO LIGHT UP YOUR HEART


Hi everyone, well i have just been reading over and over again how busy everyone is at this time of year, and i think we're all in the same boat. We had a busy weekend starting on Friday night. I took two of my girls, aged 10 and 23 to Carols by Candlelight at Shellharbour. It was just a beautiful night, with some really great singers, lots of candles and full of holiday spirit. After the Carols had finished we decided to go and see if a home i had taken them to for years when they were young, were still doing their Christmas lights, and as luck would have it, they did. You see, we have only recently moved back from another state, so we hadn't been there for 5 years. When we drove around the corner, i thought my 23 yr old was going to cry. Alot of her childhood was spent looking at these lights, it is like we went back in time. Every year the kids and i would drive the streets at night , with the Christmas CD playing in the car, looking at all the beautiful displays people had gone to so much trouble to put together, and at least 2 or 3 times a week we would go to this particular house. It is like a fairy land. The music is playing, there are christmas movies projected onto the garage doors, lights are twinkling amongst the flowers, everywhere you look in the garden something different is happening. It is the nicest display we have ever seen. I would urge anyone living in the Illawarra or close to it, to go to Mt Warrigal and see these lights. They are a dream. Here is a picture of them from the other side of the road, but the photo really doesn't do it justice.
