While most people in the South West are admiring the Christmas light displays that are popping up in our town and city centres - the residents of two towns aren't being quite so complimentary.
No, in Tiverton and Penzance the displays look like pants - according to locals.
That's not their way of saying they look bad - they literally look like pants.
Teresa Fogarty of Penzance Town Council said:
"We got a lot of comments the first year they went up. It was quite hilarious people saw the funny side of it and it's quite quirky which fits in with Penzance, that's the kind of town we are, nobody's been offended by them not that I've heard, and it just adds to the fun of Christmas which is supposed to be a jolly time anyway."
Tiverton's Christmas lights have been mocked on the internet because they look like giant green pants.
The Christmas lights, which cost £15,000, have given some festive cheer to the town but some are saying they look like a washing line covered in underwear.
Posting on Facebook Janet Johns wrote: 'Ok, if they are not pants.... what are they?" while George Parker wrote on Twitter: "Looking forward to heading home for Xmas to see Tiverton's now infamous pants."
Tiverton Town Council raise funds to pay for the Christmas lights throughout the year.
