Penzance's Christmas lights are just pants!

Penzance's Christmas lights are just pants!

Penzance's Christmas lights are simply pants according to one resident of the town.

Karen Warne contacted The Cornishman to say that, although the new lights in the town look good, there is something odd about one section.

She said: "It's nice to see the new Christmas lights in Market Jew Street.

"However, those from Causewayhead to Queens Square have fared less well.

"I understand that they are supposed to be Christmas puddings in silhouette.

"Unfortunately, the eye is drawn to that which makes the silhouette.

"A local (unscientific) straw poll has unanimously agreed that they look like pants on a washing line!"

Karen sent us a picture (above) to support her case - and she certainly appears to have a point.

Karen even went as far as to supply a poem written in honour of the unusual lights display. It reads:

A PANTASTIC CHRISTMAS

Its December, buy the presents,

Stuff the turkey, mull the wine.

Deck the house with coloured baubles,

Celebrate - its Christmas time!

Festive lights in Market Jew Street

Causewayhead's are not so fine

Doesn't have the Yuletide spirit ...

Leopardskin pants on a washing line!

    Who on earth was responsible for agreeing to the design of these lights? Knickers to them!

    To my knowledge one of the nick names for Penzance for decades has been "Mens Pants". So the lights are quite appropriate!
