Karen sent us a picture (above) to support her case - and she certainly appears to have a point.
Karen even went as far as to supply a poem written in honour of the unusual lights display. It reads:

Stuff the turkey, mull the wine.
Deck the house with coloured baubles,
Celebrate - its Christmas time!
