Christmas lights ban is a social media hoax
Despite recurring social media reports, Cairns Regional Council has not and will not ban Christmas light displays or Christmas decorations.
These reports go viral on social media each year and are a complete hoax. People receiving such messages via email or social media are urged to ignore and delete the hoax statements.
