Family dreaming of a bright Christmas

CHRISTMAS spirit is well and truly in the air in this dazzling Gungahlin home, belonging to the Bazyar family. 

Mylienda, Zachery, Chelsea, Basim and Kiyanna Bazyar

Snapper Andrew Finch took these colourful photos while on assignment – and with 210,000 lights, the house is sure to be a favourite for Christmas light watchers.

If you have a favourite “Christmas” house in Canberra, send in your snaps to or let us know where it is in the comments field.

In the meantime, here’s a list of Canberra’s best Christmas lights so far.

      There is a joke, An Irish man has a nail was hammering it in the ground, people asked him what are you doing he replied I have found the centre of the earth and I am marking it, they asked how do you know its the centre? he replies i measured it; if you doubt me go and measure it your self! In your case Daryl go and count it your self 🙂 There are 38000 lights just on that Christmas tree alone, i should know as i helped them for two weeks with the Christmas tree. Cheers

          Ok Daryl so what you saying is you went to their house and you counted every single lights, including inside, the back side, the ones in the pots, on the roof and the ones on the ground; I am curious how long did it take you to count? it took me an average 9Min to count just one of the 1000LED lights? You must of been there all night…Also if you did really go there to count which day was it so I Can ask Baz to look at his security cameras to find out who this genius is who can count so fast… See the ones on the ground, they are 5000 LED each. Do your maths, mate.

      Yes Julius, we will remember and remind us again of the baby Jesus on the Christmas day. Can’t wait for that day. May stop over at the Bazyar’s first before going to the church.
