Christmas lights never fail to fill the air with festive cheer, but at one house in west London, it's not just all about looks.
Last Christmas, he raised almost £1,000 for Binfield Dog Rescue, a figure he would like to beat in 2016.
He wants raise as much money as possible. But to complete planned work on the kennels he will need to raise around £2,000.
Dog owner Nick wants to brighten up the appearance of the dog rescue, to ensure the animals get the same chance as any other, he told getwestlondon : "It's to try and renovate the kennels there.
"To replace the walls in there from cages to concrete walls and new doors on all the kennels.
"Some people, I've seen them there, come along, they pull up and I see them shake their heads, 'Oh no' they're going and they walk away and they haven't given the dogs a chance There's some lovely old dogs that come in there".
For Nick, the process of decorating the house with Christmas lights can prove challenging.
The 55-year-old is disabled, following an above the knee amputation on his right leg.
And whilst he still manages to cover the whole house with thousands of lights, he did have a helping hand this year from a few friends who erected scaffolding to assist with the Christmas creation.
He says: "The scaffolding was a bit easier, because I could just sort of go out on my belly out of the bedroom window and get straight onto the scaffolding".
It took around 5 weeks for the house to be transformed from a blank canvas into a winter wonderland and the display features almost 25,000 lights bulbs.
And it wasn't just Nick's Christmas lights switch on attracting visitors in the area, also in Bedfont, the House of Christmas lights were switched on over the weekend:
