Ho Ho Ho... It's that time of the year. I'd be keen to know where the best Christmas lights are in Auckland.

Let's start the list! I know there's a site dedicated to this request but it doesn't beat recommendations!

Well there is Franklin Road, the usual place in the City where all the Christmas lights are.. However, we came back home, and our neighbours had this display going on, which we thought were wayy better than any we saw at Franklin Road! tongue-out
