This is how we do Christmas in Swindon

Christmas in 2020 is going to be a celebration like no other that’s for sure.  Thanks to the pandemic, we’re all too aware of what we can’t do this year. Unfortunately we can’t change that. So let’s focus on the positives and take a look at the many things we can do!

Sharing the Christmas spirit of Swindon

Thank you to everyone who has sent in their photos of their homes lit up for Christmas. Let’s share the Christmas Swindon spirit and show everyone how we do #ChristmasInSwindon.

More videos of Swindon homes decorated with amazing Christmas lights already this year! 

We present you with the PLJ family interactive Christmas light show
Covingham, Swindon.

On a foggy, cold but crisp Swindon evening I wrapped up my daughter, bundled her in to the car and headed out to take photos of festive decorated houses in Swindon. Armed with a clip board, pen and a list of the house I’d seen on Swindon Facebook groups, we were excited about what we were going to find.

The PLJ Christmas light extravaganza

When we arrived near Paul, Lou and Jorja’s house, we could see the shining beacon of Christmas joy from down the road.  Our breathe was taking away as pull up outside and we instantly felt a bit emotional, like a wave of pride for the Swindon people.

Before us was the results of a year of planning, ambition and dedication to cheering up neighbours, visitors and probably people living on Mars!

Paul, Lou and Jorja came out (socially distancing) and stood staring with us at this gloriously festive lit up house, with so much pride.

My daughter Bethany, armed with her donation, read the sign on display.

‘PLJ interactive Christmas light show. Please donate if you can all money raised will go to Children in Need. We hope you enjoy the show. Paul, Lou & Jorja.

Choose your own show. 1. Blue button to choose show. 2. Red button to play show. 3. Stand back and enjoy the show’.

And that we did, watching awe as the music started and the lights danced in time to the festive tune. As an eight-year-old would, she did this a few times and was treated to music and light extravaganza shows with Mariah Carey ‘All I want for Christmas’, a Frozen 2 song and more.

We were at the house for quite a while as others came to watch. All had seen the house on Facebook, put the address in to their phones and arrived with their donation for Children in Need, before watching this splendid treat.
