Advent Calendar of Christmas Memoriess 4: Lighting up our Village

The film "National Lampoon - Christmas Vacation"  and the family's  over-the-top lights displays immediately come to mind here with this prompt. 

Britain has  been slow to adopt the American custom of Christmas lights  outside the house, but there are signs we are getting there! 

In the Scottish Borders my village of Earlston (population 1,980)  puts on a grand display, thanks to a hard working team of volunteers.  

We might not have many shops - just two convenience stores, post office, butcher, baker, fish & chip and Chinese takeaways, three pubs  and one cafe - plus school, church and rugby club,  but we have one of the best Christmas displays in the Borders to light up the approaches to our Market Square.   See for yourself!   

And so: 

“The Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (ACCM) allows you to share your family’s holiday history twenty-four different ways during December! Learn more at http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com.
