Credit goes to Peter Bridge, of Aston, Herts UK, for suggesting housebling to describe houses extravagantly decorated with lights.

What is ‘bling’?

If you’re over thirty, you probably need to ask this question. The word originated with New Orleans rappers in the ‘nineties and is an all-embracing term for diamonds, jewellery and glitzy style. Take a look on Apple’s iTunes and you’ll see how much bling there is about!
