The Bundaberg Region is sparkling with festive magic as Christmas light displays illuminate neighbourhoods and bring joy to residents and visitors alike.
Enchanting local streets are adorned with dazzling decorations as community members have worked tirelessly to curate a stunning array of Christmas light displays that promise to captivate audiences of all ages.
Community members have been keen to share their displays with others, with some choosing to share on social media.
Branyan resident Narelle Wilson said families were invited to embark on a magical journey, where twinkling lights and festive inflatables had created a visual spectacle on Pharlap Parade.
“My children always wanted to make a Christmas lights display and enter the competitions when they were younger, so as soon as they were able to afford it, they started,” Narelle said.
“Covid seemed to put a stop to the competitions unfortunately.
“But the kids, now grown-up, still wanted to make other kids enjoy Christmas, so each year, they try their best with what they have.”
Also sharing her Christmas light display was Shen Michelle of Neville Drive, Branyan who said the local Christmas light displays not only added a touch of magic to the region but also provided an opportunity for residents to come together and celebrate the spirit of the season.
“Our Christmas lights display is fun, we have a big gingerbread man and Santa, penguins and some cheeky gnomes,” Shen said.
“Our Christmas tree is 3 m tall and almost 4 m round!
“To me Christmas is about giving, not just presents but happiness, joy and love to light up people’s faces with a big smile when they see our lights.
“That makes my soul happy.
“We have had children knocking on our door just to tell us they love our Christmas lights.
“A simple gesture creates a ripple effect of gratitude and that’s the community spirit we all need.
“Don’t be stressed this Christmas, have fun, relax and enjoy your family and friends.”
