Scottish town creates Christmas lights based on children's drawings

The tiny town of Newburgh in Fife, Scotland started an amazing tradition last year when they had no new lights to add to their annual Christmas displays.

They would transform local children's drawings, whether they be a two-legged "reinduck", a grumpy penguin and a dancing Christmas tree, into actual Christmas lights that would be hung around town!

This year, two new lights have been added to the display: a festive dinosaur and a pandemic-inspired rainbow!

Susan Ewing, Newburgh Primary's headteacher, told the BBC, "It's a great community project and the children all get very excited designing their entries and finding out who the winners are. It's a lovely tradition we have in the village, and it certainly makes our village feel extra festive. We're all looking forward to seeing the new designs!"
