With Christmas Just Around The Corner

I just had to put another picture of a Christmas themed house,

this one from Paul Toole whose home is in a cul-de-sac in Wells, Somerset, it required a £20,000 investment and nine months of preparation, Paul Toole has transformed his bungalow into a winter wonderland, complete with quarter of a mile of fake snow and 50,000 fairy lights which flash in time to his own radio channel, yes you read that correctly his own radio channel! the 11 festive tracks play on a loop while a Father Christmas figurine in his garden moves to the beat of each song,

more than 1,000 people turned out for the switch-on,held in aid of the Make a Wish foundation, and were each given a mince pie from a local bakery, a team from Starbucks also handed out free drinks, Mr Toole has spent a staggering 264 hours synching his lights to his radio station and the Father Christmas figure - as one minute of music takes eight hours to sequence, Mr Toole's radio station, 89.2FM, is broadcast from a transmitter a few hundred yards from his home between 5pm and 9.30pm from December 1 until January 5, crikey I still have not found where we put our Christmas lights from last year!
