Residents put on impressive light displays across the country to raise money for charity
Christmas light displays are being switched on across the capital. As usual, the crowds are being drawn in to take in the festive sights.
Traditional displays continue to prove popular across London. This year, Oxford Street has hung almost 2000 white glowing orbs whilst the peacock-themed display at Bond Street includes giant glittering feathers.
Many residential areas are also taking part in the festivities.
The residents of one street in Dagenham worked together over 28 days to transform their row of houses into a winter wonderland inspired by the Disney film, Frozen. The spectacle used over 15,000 lights. Crowds have been gathering to take in the scene.
In Wiltshire meanwhile, an electrician has covered his house in over 100,000 lights. The installation took him a total of five weeks andover 500 metres of cable to complete. It cost a total of £1200 to run over four weeks. Locals there too have been congregating to admire his efforts.
Both of these displays are taking collections for charities so it is not just for show - or to annoy the neighbours.
