So, the time has come to deck the halls and all that jazz, but when it comes to Christmas decorations there seems to be 3 main camps â€“ the bah humbugs, the middle of the roaders and the all out exhibitionists.
Being a middle of the roader myself I canâ€™t say that I have been involved in any Christmas decoration turf wars but I understand that the quest to completely cover your house in flashing lights, reindeer and snowmen can be an extremely expensive affair!
Although I may not be an all outer, my home city of York has (in the past) been voted the most Christmassy city in GB (woohoo!), so I feel this is good enough to make up for my mediocre efforts. In fact there is a street in York that has been covering their houses and gardens with twinkling lights and outdoor Christmas dÃ©cor for 10 years, raising over Â£45,000 for charity â€“ charity really does start at home!
Now that Christmas is nearly upon us, let me know whatâ€™s the most Christmassy house, street or even town you have seen â€“ I might take some tips for next year!
