Day 12 of the GiVeAwAy

In China, paper lanterns decorate the "Tree of Light" whilst children await visits from Dun Che Lao Ren, which means ... Christmas Old Man.
In India, mango & banana trees are decorated and small oil burning lamps light the edge of rooftops as special decorations.

I have lights decorating my home and so do many others so hubby & I LoVe to walk around and admire the neighbourhood homes aglow.  Sooo   P R E T T Y !!
I even have a village which lights up at night and this truly is my favourite decoration! Pic's at the end of this post. Hope you enjoy them.

Congratulations to everyone who won, and to you for doing such a fun giveaway.

I love your village, and even spotted a British phone box in there. It must have taken years to collect so many lovely little houses.
