Our neighbours seem to be getting caught up in one of those "Deck The Halls" competitions starring Matthew Broderick and Danny de Vito, trying to out-do each other with garish Christmas lights covering their houses.
They pale into obscurity, however next to Tate Britain.
The art gallery in London is embellishing its façade with a garish display of Christmas lights, including a selection of LED Santas, reindeer, snowmen and Christmas trees, along with ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Santa Stop Here’ signs.
The artist Alan Kane calls it "Home for Christmas" and it is instead of the Tate's usual Christmas tree. The neo-classical frontage of the building was designed by the architect Sidney RJ Smith 120 years ago, and has never looked better!
