It's not Christmas in our house until I've packed up the car with all my children in their pyjamas and driven around the streets looking for the best Christmas lights. It's become an annual tradition, made so much easier by 4KQ's Christmas Lights competition. As a busy working parent of three kids, I don't know where these people find the time to decorate their homes so beautifully, but I'm so grateful they do. My kids love it, and although it means I have to put off my evening Baileys on ice (ahhh Christmas), I have to admit, I look forward to the drive every year. There is a beautiful community spirit and everyone is in a good mood. I drive around until the children fall asleep and then I can enjoy that Christmas vibe of not a creature stirring, not even a mouse.

We know there are some hazy borders around what constitutes the northside of Brisbane and beyond, but we're making some bold choices and drawing the line somewhere. The main thing is that there are lights not too far from you that are easy to get to!

We'll keep building our list over the coming weeks as more people start sharing their displays. Here are the best Christmas lights we've found on the northside of Brisbane:
