It was a dark and stormy night tonight at number 225 with a really strong wind coming off the sea straight into the hut. This gave an added dimension to the display which consisted of lots of hanging silver stars which danced and spun in the wind adding to the effect created by a spinning starball throwing out sparkling beams of light across the scene. Below all this heavenly activity sat the beautiful, tranquil little town of Bethlehem, simply depicted using blocks of wood against a stark black backdrop.
Despite the wind and rain loads of people came out and it was great to see so many families braving the weather and enjoying themselves splashing about in the puddles.
Someone commented on how the whole event made them think about God in a way they hadn't before and that they felt a spiritual atmosphere which they didn't normally associate with Christmas.
That's one of the things we're hoping to achieve with this event as we help people to focus on the real meaning of Christmas.
Tomorrow, hut 425 right next to Hove Lagon.
