But Leeds residents could have the right idea, saving thousands of pounds over Christmas by cutting back on lights.

The survey found that festive light displays are likely to cost households a total of £222million extra on electricity bills over the Christmas period.

More and more families are putting up light displays outside their home, with one in five lighting up the front of their house this year.

And some houses in Leeds have enough lights for the whole region, boasting impressive Christmas displays which go above and beyond to spread the Christmas cheer.
