Lights and Christmas decorations will be illuminated for the holidays in the New England state of New Hampshire this year, as the state celebrates its first year of statewide Christmas lighting.
The New Hampshire Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says the state’s first Christmas light show, set to start on Dec. 1, will be the largest in New England since 2007.
It will also mark the first time New England has been in the holiday lighting business for more than a decade.
The state’s new light show is the first of its kind in the country, officials said.
It is the second year the state has been celebrating Christmas.
In 2007, New Hampshire became the first state to do so.
The department says it expects the new lights to light up the entire state and create hundreds of jobs.
