Christmas light nights

A BCer has declared this Cranfield Road home the first out of the traps to embrace the spirit of Christmas, which reminds us what we meant to ask you all...

This year, we had some people down from Liverpool for Halloween and we thought we would blow their tiny minds by showing them the extent to which some Brockley residents do Halloween night [we missed the motorbikes].

Whilst appreciating the effort that many houses had gone to, they nonetheless trumped us, by revealing that where they live, the whole neighbourhood does a "Christmas lights switch-on", so everyone agrees to turn their house and Christmas tree lights on at exactly 5pm on the same day and throw a party to celebrate.

Would that work in Brockley? Would you want to do something like that? Could we pull it off?
