Dublin's Christmas lights are being switched on some time this week

But no one knows when.

Dublin's Christmas lights are being switched on some time this week.

The one million plus light bulbs will come to life at a desperately unknown time during the week, finally lighting the city up with festive cheer.

Five kilometres of lights across 30 streets are set to come on all at once - so if you happen to be wandering about the place, don't be surprised if the city lights up all of a sudden, without warning, out of nowhere.

Great to see it. Whenever it may be.

Dublin Town confirmed that the lights are due to switch on this week beginning November 11. They couldn't, however, provide an exact time as to when the Christmas-based excitement is due to kick off.

"A lot of people are asking us, when are The #DublinTownChristmas Lights coming on??" they said.

"As they old song goes… It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Well it will be next week when Dublintown.ie lights up the city!

"There is no set date and no set event, they will just come on. So when you're wandering around #DublinTown next week, you might be lucky enough to be standing under them for that special moment when they switch on for the first time this year!" 

Best keep an eye out, so.
