Watch closely.

It escalates sharply.

Unspecified location (possibly Tipperary).

Media Coop has created a little film about some of Dublin’s most committed Christmas illuminators.

Colin Norris, of Media Coop, writes:

One of the neighbours, Mr Tilly, would be busy setting his lights up every year and we wanted to know why he did it? We ended up visiting homes in Sandymount, Crumlin and Palmerstown to meet the people who, every Christmas, light up their homes for their communities and the charities they support.

Meet Mr Tilly, Josie and Seanie as they invite us into their incredible homes and tell us about why they ‘Let it Glow’ each Christmas.

It’s my annual mail asking you to plug my naughty-language-laden site for picking Christmas presents, but without having to resort to putting thought into it.

It’s getting close now, so I reckon your readers will be at the required level of desperation to find it useful

What the eff will YOU get?

The Immigrant Council of Ireland tweetz:

This week the abhorrent language & experiences of racism have again made the headlines. But hear this: a family just called us as they want to invite a family living in direct provision to share Christmas in their home – sharing culture a great way to #EndRacism #FridayFeeling
