Meet the town where the Christmas decorations are already up

Christmas cannot come soon enough for the good people of Attleborough, a small but lively town in the English county of Norfolk.

It not even Halloween yet, but pumpkins are out and snowmen are already in evidence.

Attleborough residents are so keen on Christmas that the town's Christmas decorations have already been put up - even though it well over two months to go to Christmas Day.

Elliot Ellis, who leads Attleborough Christmas Lights Committee, told the Eastern Daily Press newspaper: "Over the last few years we have had problems due to Covid causing illness among the light engineers, which meant it got pretty tight to get ready in time.

"This year, we have started a week early to avoid that issue."

A week early? Good golly Mr Ellis.

The Attleborough festivities are so popular that "people travel from all over Norfolk" to see the lights being switched on." Santa is apparently a contender to do the honours.

This year that will be on November 27, so organisers are certainly ahead of schedule this time around.

You've got to love a bit of enthusiasm.
