EVERY year in October Elia Courtyard resident Len Radalj starts putting up Christmas lights around his home.
Some of the lights are fashioned from TV antennas and other things he has collected during the year.
When Echo News visited his Swan View home this week Mr Radalj was a bit worried about the reindeer in the display.
“He needs to visit a vet as he’s done his back in,’’ he joked.
On December 1 for the past 28 years he has turned on the lights to help spread some joy at Christmas.
From then until after Christmas the lights are turned on every evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
This year four other homes in the street have Christmas lights on display.
At 84 Mr Radalj, whose birthday is on January 19, is not getting any younger.
For the past few years Mr Radalj has hinted each year might be his last year but he seems to enjoy the result too much to quit just now.
He said the setting up was a bit of a challenge each year now especially on hot days.
“Afterwards with the help of his grandchildren it takes a couple of days to take them all down again.’’
Residents in Blackadder Rd also get into the spirit of Christmas by decorating their homes.
