See if you can spot yourself or a friend singing festive carols at the annual Framlingham Christmas Lights Switch-on event.
Around 100 people braved the cold for the traditional celebration on Market Hill on Saturday evening.
Residents cheered as the Christmas tree lit up in front of their eyes, with the honour going to Thomas Mills High School students Molly Constanti and Harry Trott.
They also belted out Christmas carols during the evening event.
Jenny Stockman, chair of Framlingham Business Association and event organiser, said: “It was lovely. Lots of families turned out, as well as church choirs. The turnout was not huge but it was perfect.

“It’s nice and we sing some songs. It’s just very traditional. We like it that way.”
She added: “The event is a tradition, but it is also about the community coming together. We work with a lot of the community groups and it’s important throughout the year that we have these working relationships so we can put on events, keep the town vibrant, and make it a great place for people to visit and do business.”
