Lights, Santa, action! English village puts on show for charity

LONDON (Reuters) - Residents in the southeast English village of Westfield have transformed their homes into a vast Christmas light show in order to raise money for charity.

Around 30 homes in Westfield, Sussex, have taken up the annual challenge, with hundreds of bright lights decked out across exteriors and images of Father Christmas and snowmen dotted throughout the village.

The light display, which runs until Jan 1 and attracts many curious visitors, has raised over 35,000 pounds ($43,500) for a Westfield hospice in the past.
