Brantford and the County of Brant residents have been hard at work making spirits bright with a variety of holiday décor and lighting displays.

Across the city, homes are anticipating the big arrival of Santa Claus, and all throughout the streets, many areas can be seen glowing from a far.  

The Grinch is hard at work taking down the lights of a Paris home on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.

Homes in Paris, St. George, and Brantford have a variety of displays this year. From an abundance of inflatable Santa’s clutching a teddy bear to the Grinch stealing Christmas lights, reindeers, snowmen and dancing lights, there’s no shortage of displays to check out this holiday season.

Twelve-foot inflatable Santa Claus’ can be seen all throughout the Holmedale neighbourhood on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.

In particular, the Dufferin Avenue area has been feeling festive as a multitude of homes have taken it upon themselves to decorate their lawns with 12-foot inflatable Santa’s holding onto a teddy bear.

Facebook groups have said the neighbourhood is out to compete with several other cities who have done something similar. The decorations are a site to see, and many have been seeing how many they can find throughout the area and the city.
