Christmas-coloured lights

Christmas=coloured lights
Each year it seems like thousands of people make their way through the quiet middle-income suburb of Bothasig (map) to catch some of the festive spirit that the residents have put on display on their homes and in their gardens.

Although we have Christmas trees in our homes, and the occasional wreath on our doors, massive amounts of Christmas lights and decorations aren't as big a thing in South Africa as we're made to believe it is in the USA. But, somehow the tradition caught on in this suburb - and each year it seems like the collection of brightly-coloured lights increase in number. Perhaps some day the suburb will glow even brighter than the City! :)

Take a look at this Zoopy news report that shows some footage from the area.
