Saturday afternoon was cold and wet but that didn't stop us venturing into sale for the Christmas lights switch on. This has become a family tradition now, we have been going since before Megan was born.
As sale is relatively small, the Christmas lights switch on has a family feel.
There is dancing by local dance companies, singing and the local theatre groups perform a bit of panto as a plug for their pantos over the festive period.
The actual light switch on is a big count down and ta da!
This year was extra special as Ben, at 3 years, was aware of what was happening. When we got there and he saw everyone he said, "what's happening here?" When he realised he was very excited.
And even though it was cold and wet we enjoyed ourselves, the children liked watching the dancing and panto and enthusiastically counted down tmtgdagg switch on and thought the lights looked lovely!
