'tis the season to show off your amazing christmas lights

Love them or loathe them there's no getting away from the fact that having extravagant Christmas lighting on the outside of your house is gathering momentum to the extent that some streets even have competitions – or is it just one-upmanship?

This phenomenon isn't just in the UK – you'll find it all around the world; of course it's a big thing in the USA! There's something quite magical to this house's lighting display; having all one colour takes away the tackiness that many others display. But of course the end result is all in the eye of the beholder.

Covering the entire outside of your house with blocks of colour is one way to create an amazing display.

Use your shrubs and bushes to add contour and height to an outdoor display that resembles an enchanted forest in miniature.
