10.000 sterline di decorazioni natalizie

La coppia natalizia copre la loro intera casa di luci fiabesche.

Michael e Lyn Farnes hanno speso circa 10.000 sterline negli ultimi 16 anni per trasformare la loro casa a Hove, nell’East Sussex, in un paese delle meraviglie invernale.

La trasformazione annuale della loro casa, è iniziato come una vera versione del film festivo “Deck the Halls”, ma ora la coppia raccoglie migliaia di sterline per beneficenza ogni anno. Nel film del 2006, Danny DeVito copre la sua casa con così tante luci che può essere vista dallo spazio, mentre si impegna a battere il vicino di casa Matthew Broderick.

“Deck the Halls” “Conciati per le feste” fillm del 2006

La signora Farnes, 53 anni, ha dichiarato: “Tutto è iniziato da quando abbiamo montato alcune luci a forma di ghiacciolo. Il nostro ex vicino di casa ha avuto un piccolo lamento”.

“Così l’anno successivo Michael ha acceso un po’ di luci in più rispetto a prima come uno scherzo e da lì ha proseguito”.

“Penso che non gli dispiacesse alla fine e lo trovò divertente”.

“Ho visto il film Deck The Halls, suppongo sia un po’ così”.

Il sig. Farnes, 55 anni, inizia a pianificare le sue esposizioni a gennaio quando valuta eventuali riparazioni necessarie, sulle luci e sui modelli dell’anno precedente.

Passa i mesi a pianificare il tema per il prossimo anno, realizzando molti pezzi a mano.


La coppia si destreggia tra i lavori a tempo pieno a Sainsbury’s e si prende cura dei loro tre figli. La più giovane, Roni-Jo, che ha nove anni, è conosciuta nella sua scuola come la ragazza che vive nella casa di Natale. 

Quest’anno ha speso circa £ 1.500 per nuove luci e ha creato una scena del Polo Nord completa di orsi polari, pinguini e una cascata ghiacciata.

L’ultima esibizione è accompagnata da più di 60 Babbi Natale e pupazzi di neve, otto alberi, una slitta e un pozzo dei desideri.

I visitatori passano davanti alla casa e ora ci sono persino tour in pullman.

Le luci sono accese fino alle 21:00. Questo costa alla famiglia più di 200 sterline l’anno, ma si è ridotto di almeno 50 sterline perché ora usano lampadine LED a risparmio energetico.

 La signora Farnes ha detto: “È bello ascoltare i bambini fuori quando vengono e visitarli – sono così eccitati. Tutto questo è per i bambini”.

 “Michael ama il Natale e si diverte a mettere tutto insieme. Il piacere deriva dal vedere tutti i bambini sorridenti”.

Quest’anno la famiglia sta raccogliendo fondi per quattro organizzazioni di beneficenza e tre rifugi per animali con sede a Brighton e Hove.
