2013 marks the 29th year that the Mangelsdorf family has created a Christmas Wonderland along their 250 metres of property frontage. From humble beginnings with a few lights, reindeers and a sleigh, Peter's display now uses hundreds of cutouts, thousands of lights and ten hidden Wallys.
A disability pensioner, Peter adds to the display each year, keeping current with popular culture and children's cartoon characters. Each year sees new displays and technological advances in electronic yuletide illumination devices.
