One home-owner said I think I'll save my money

We went on a boat trip last night with others from our lifestyle village. We toured the canals at Mandurah, Western Australia, to view the Christmas decorations on the houses there. These are mostly mansions and some have the whole frontage awash with sparkling lights. One person saved a lot of money and had a sense of humour with his ‘Ditto’ sign pointing to the more affluent neighbour. We’ve heard that some employ professionals to design and install their lights. I’ll put another photo of one of the more colourful ones in a future post but for now, here is the Ditto one.

Oh I like that. Running those christmas lights is costly and right now my electric bill is already too high just trying to keep my home at 59f indoors, to me that's cold but not as cold as it is outside at night.

I'm wondering if they use solar power for those lights.

@rebelann Quite possibly they do. Some of our little twinkly lights are on solar power.

They could feed half of Africa on what they're spending here.

That is amusing and everything is so colorful. Interesting that I was just writing an article for a post about Mandurah.

A boat trip sounds nice. The rain is falling still here, maybe a boat ride to the grocery store later. Love the Ditto sign.

How beautiful the inverted reflection in the water is ! The house awash with sparkling lights did stick out like a sore thumb.

It's a clever response. You could feed a lot of people with all the money spent on the lights.

The Christmas holidays are around the corner. However most people have started preparations that includes decoration on the house entrance, compounds and in business premises. Some are purchasing the Xmas trees and are decorating them in deed. The decorations and all the Xmas preparations seems very amazing to look at. They also bring up the Christmas mood which is the most good thing and the purpose of it all.

We don't have an indoor tree yet but we might buy a small one.

The owner of the house has a sense of humor. and he's ingenious as well. Enjoying the festive holiday season while saving lots of money. I could just imagine how much the electric bill will his/her neighbor would be.
