This is the history of how I developed an interest in Christmas Lights from the age of about 4 to the present day, from simple lights done by my dad, through the humble decorations during early married life to the recent technological developments including the use of computers.

A journey that you might like to explore, explained in a light hearted manner with pictures and some simple technical bits.
