The Christmas lights in Penzance, Cornwall, are supposed to look like Christmas puddings.
But locals say they look more like leopard print underwear dangling from a washing line.
Local resident Karen Warne said: "It's nice to see the new Christmas lights in Market Jew Street. I understand that they are supposed to be Christmas puddings in silhouette.
"A local (unscientific) straw poll has unanimously agreed that they look like like pants on a washing line."
