A WOMAN whose home has become the top Christmas attraction of Coatbridge has vowed to keep expanding her display.

Elaine Slaven, has been lighting up her garden with a selection of festive decorations for 20-years.

Her belief in the magic of Christmas is what drives her to put up the display.

Elaine said: “I’m just a big kid at heart and I love Christmas.

“I could never decorate my old house because it wasn’t safe enough to leave everything outside but as soon as I moved here I started doing it.

“I done it for my kids because they loved it when they were younger but now they’re older, I do it for everyone else.

“It’s always nice to see people stopping their cars to have a look and coming to chat about what I’ve got this year.”

The council worker, whose job focuses on encouraging people to save energy, uses all energy saving bulbs in her decorations.

“People are always asking me what I’ve got planned for my next display so I always want to keep doing it.

“As long as I can carry the decorations into the garden, I’ll be doing it”.
