The Mousehole Lights

A little Mousehole fetish shouldn’t be ignored. The Mousehole lights equals the start of Christmas. The big switch on this 2011 is Saturday 17th December; you don’t want to miss it.

Mousehole is well known for a few things; but the two things that conjure up it’s USP for me: the Mousehole Cat and the Christmas lights. The
Mousehole Cat is a wondrous tale, beautifully illustrated and every time I head down to Mousehole I try to spot the cat.

The lights however are easier to spot. Organised by the village monies are raised throughout the year so that the annual spectacular raises the Christmas bar time and time again. The lights that illuminate the harbour are utterly magical and truly not to be missed. At 7.30pm on Saturday
17th December the lights switch on signalling the imminent arrival of festive cheer. I defy anyone not to be entranced by the twinkling on the
fishing boats.

Drink hots chocs on the harbour front and countdown to Christmas.
