Although this year is supposed to be the time of cheer – a LOT of people were very unhappy.
While teenagers, families and more came out in their hundreds to watch the lights being tunred on – people were left angry when they were left waiting.
While the lights were scheduled to be turned on at 6pm, but it was 7pm before they see Grafton Street lit up.
People took to Twitter to hit out at the fact they were left waiting, while some families actually left Grafton Street to go and get food and stay warm.
From the photos of the night, the only lights that could be seen were from the Brown Thomas windows as well as hundreds of people using their phones as lights.
