Daily December #24 Lame Lights, Rock Stars, Midnight Maths and spot the difference

So we've just got home from our traditional Mum and kids Christmas Eve expedition to check out the lights in the neighbourhood. We've been from Hobsonville to Greenhithe, Herald Island, Whenuapai, Westgate, Massey and West Harbour and it was the lamest light display on record!! There were two big highlight houses- one new and one old. We also saw a man who provided much amusement for Merenia... I believe he may have had a few drinks this fine Christmas Eve and Merenia said he was acting like a rock star... I would suggest that he was acting a LOT more like a porn star- lucky it was dark so M thought he was strumming his guitar! We saw the people from the temple on Royal Road all dressed up like they did 2000 odd years ago. We discussed Midnight Mass- Merenia wasn't keen but then she's never all that keen for MATHS during the day either. And the finer points of sleigh spotting were also mulled over... as opposed to planes- the lights on Sleighs do not flash. There is also a longer line of lights along the reindeer harness. Of course the differences were meaningless to us because a) it's not after midnight, and b) it's too cloudy- Santa apparently flies above the cloud line.
