One of the best things about the festive season is drinking in the Yuletide grandeur of a suburban home festooned with lights, tinsel, and all manner of Christmas finery.
In fact, it’s hard not to be filled with the spirit of the season on seeing an otherwise normal abode lit up like, well, a Christmas Tree.
If you don’t have the time to indulge your inner Clark Griswold this Christmas, there are plenty of opportunities to check out some truly impressive festive displays right across Newcastle and the Hunter region.
To save you driving around aimlessly, with the family in tow, in the hopes of finding Christmas-themed front yards, you can just head to Christmas Light Search or Christmas Lights in the Hunter and have all the guesswork done for you.
