Interested in attending a Mini in 2020? Minis are typically held on a weekend during April-July. Watch the Mini Christmas Expos forum to receive alerts (and emails) when planning and discussion begins.
When I had the idiots come in 2013 and relieve my front yard of a vertical mega-tree a few years back, I had quite a lot of coverage - TV interviews and stories on 7, 9 & 10, as well as several radio interviews and newspaper stories.. Most of these were online in the past but are now returning 404's, so they must clean up older videos over time.
But last year I did a live cross to the today show (national), and the Nine weather girl did a live cross last year (perth only). The Today show one doesn't seem to want to embed, sorry.
Speaking of blogs, social media etc... a little teaser: From next year's lights season, it ought to be easier to share the essential details about your display location to Twitter and Facebook by sharing a link to the display listing here on AusChristmasLighting. Anything to help your claim to fame, right?
Thanks @lithgowlights for agreeing to be used as an example (who may not have been asked but shhh)
This is just one of several changes that I intend to roll out to the site sometime during 2019. Expect more details on these changes after Christmas or early next year, hopefully!
It's been a while since I have posted. So we stepped it up a bit since the 7 posts on the Mummy blog. My display is just traditional as my kids like it that way. They just aren't fans of the computer controlled stuff yet. I'm sure that will change one day when they are all older. So while I'm not quite as cool as BradsXmasLights and his super doper mega light extravaganza we did get out 5 seconds of fame at the end of 2018.
