It’s the most wonderful time of the year and although the holidays will be slightly different in 2020 it hasn’t stopped some spectacular Christmas lights displays from popping up around the city.
In most streets you can find a house that’s glittered with lights, giant snowmen and nativity scenes, often playing music to amuse the little ones.
Some households have even put up stunning decorations and displays, in line with coronavirus guidance, to raise money for chosen charities.
Here are pictures of some that Star readers have spotted while out and about in the city, all of which certainly bring that festive cheer and light up the darkest of winter nights.
If you think you’ve outdone yourself with the festive decorations this year, you can send a photo to [email protected]
5. Greenhill lights
This festive season, the people of Greenhill were asked to decorate their houses like never before and they responded in their droves. The suburb is definitely worth a visit if you're planning a Christmas lights trail.

8. Westfield Avenue, Thurlstone
A bit further afield but for a great cause! Jamie Horne and his dad have outdone themselves this year with this great display in Thurlstone in aid of West Yorkshire Dog Rescue. It features musical lights which are spread over four gardens, with children able to visit the grotto and see Santa.
