Tauranga lighting up for Christmas

As Christmas time gets closer, it seems there is more and more magic in the air.

Summer is on its way, school and work are on break, and there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Many streets and suburbs around Tauranga have lit up their garden, their house, anything that can be decorated with Christmas lights, and have put on a display for members of the community of all ages to enjoy.

There is always something about Christmas lights – you could stare at them for hours and just feel memorised.

Tauranga couple Terralie and Keith Hardy have been decorating their hours for 15 years.

With 36 reindeer, a full size Santa sleigh and palm trees created by Keith, it is no wonder hundreds of people come in search of the Hairini property every year.

Although the display may look like the Hardy’s are Christmas mad, Terralie says they are far from Christmas mad, and the lights are for the community and their grandchildren.

The couple’s home is part of the annual Weekend Sun Christmas Light Drive.

For those wanting to get out and about in the community and looking at the Christmas lights, head along on the 2021 Weekend Sun Christmas Light Drive, where you can see the best lights in the neighbourhood.
