Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

The Montville Christmas Wonderland display is enhanced by a large sleigh with Santa and his reindeer for photo opportunities, as well as Santa's toy workshop. Look out for photos of Christmas celebrations in towns and cities all around the world - all personally captured by Judy and Graham.

A fantasy world of light and colour


According to Graham: "The most common question people ask us is, "Why do we do it?". The simple answer is that for a range of reasons nearly everyone loves the Christmas season and we feel that we can add to their enjoyment of the season by giving them something special to see. But more than that, we see this as a chance to display our Christian faith and communicate the real meaning of Christmas. So people will see Santa and reindeer and elves and snowmen and presents, etc in the display; but they will also see the baby Jesus and wise men and angels and shepherds, because at the end of the day the greatest wonder of Christmas is the significance of the birth of Jesus."
