THERE’S no shortage of festive spirit lighting up St Marys-Mount Druitt.
Families driving around town on the hunt for the best Christmas lights are spoilt for choice.
Festivities are in full swing with visitors by the busload flocking from outside the area to gaze in wonder at the dazzling displays.
While most flicked the switch on December 1, households behind the creations are getting ready for their busiest week with just seven sleeps until Christmas Day.
A trip to Concorde Place, St Clair, is a must for any Christmas lights itinerary.
Kylie Tatafu, husband Veehala and their three children have been decorating their home for seven years, with the help of her parents Debbie and Wayne Turner.
Their creation this year has a winter wonderland theme and consists of up to 5000 lights.
“We’ve lost count of the lights,” Mrs Tatafu said.
“It’s been busy but the last two weeks are always the busiest.
“The kids won’t go to bed until the lights are turned off.”
The Tatafus’ lights will be on every night in December.
The Egan family next door go to as much trouble and includes a visit from Santa.
“There’s no rivalry — we complement each other,” Mrs Tatufu said.
