(142)  Lighting up Christmas (continued)

Mr David Rowlands of Irvine, who was interdicted by his neighbours in 2000 from switching on 8,500 Christmas lights, several singing Santas, figurines including Mary and Joseph, the Three Wise Men, a giant plastic candy cane, a talking tree, reindeer and elves in and around his house and garden before Epiphany/Twelfth Night 2001 (see No 92), is again in trouble.  A claim of breach of interdict has been made against him because his front garden is again filled by a seasonal display featuring Santa, angels and a Nativity scene, while his garage doors are now made of Perspex, revealing within a fully lit Chistmas grotto (all featured on BBC TV’s Breakfast Time programme on 18 December 2001).
