For this week’s Moment in Time, we have compiled a collection of photographs of Christmas lights being switched on across Laois over the years.
Always an event to draw crowds, and it is clear from these pictures that as the year’s pass, it grows in popularity.
These pictures showcase the very essence of both Christmas and community spirit.
Take a look and see if you can spot yourself.
