#LightItUp If there was ever a year to go all out and decorate your house or front yard with Christmas decorations and lights, this is the year. We all need lots of joy and fun this holiday season after yet another year we would rather forget.
To spread joy, Newy with Kids is encouraging people to decorate their homes so that we can create a trail of Christmas lights in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley and Port Stephens to bring some joy into Christmas 2021.
We want to put together a massive list of homes that are decorated with Christmas lights. This is by far, our favourite Christmas article to put together each year. Driving around and spotting Christmas lights is a holiday tradition for many local families and we greatly appreciate the efforts of those who create Christmas displays for all of us to enjoy, especially those raising money for charities.
Start putting up those Christmas lights and decorations and get together with your neighbours to create streets full of beautiful Christmas displays. Whether you just want to put a few strings of lights out or go all out OTT and really let it shine, that’s your choice. FYI, we’ve noticed plenty of cool Christmas decorations at Costco and Bunnings.
Once you’ve decorated your house, fill in the form below or email us and let us know. (If you’re not decorating your house this year but have noticed a house in your neighbourhood that’s decorated, fill in the form too)
From these entries, we’ll create a list of houses as well as a map so you can enjoy some neighbourhood walks or drives with your kids or grandkids. Last year, we had more 100+ locations on our list, and this year, we want to add even more!
Once you submit your house, we’ll add it to our Christmas Lights list (usually the same day).
