500,000 Christmas Lights Display Dazzles Spectators
The one thing that makes Christmas so freaking special, other that the gifts we get to exchange, of course, are the Christmas lights that we get to put up all around us. Their twinkling light gives us a sense of otherworldly presence, something that makes us believe that for a short period of time, we live in some magical land.
It is a tradition honored across the ages - people would decorate the outside of their houses and front lawns to celebrate the coming of the happiest time of the year. Even in those warmer regions, where snow is a thing of fiction, people would scatter fake snow to bring the Christmas spirit closer.
As time passed, technology became more available and even more affordable, people would go way out of their way to create the most elaborate yard decorations. Hollywood has made a fortune out of movies on this subject!
With over 500,000 lights this is without a doubt the biggest Christmas light show in New Zealand. Carl and Maureen from RockinLights Ltd have put together a phenomenal attraction with characters, displays and music to make this event a memorable one.
"You are going to be in-thrilled with the trains that are running among the displays," the show's organizers Carl and Maureen from RockinLights Ltd say. The patrons that will visit this light show will be treated to a musical lineup including AC/DC, Metallica, Doobie Brothers, Midge Marsden, Burning Rain, Devilskin and more.
The Christchurch Christmas light show runs from November 28 to December 30 from 8:30pm until midnight each day. Entry to the event is $5.
