My petty neighbours complain about my OTT Christmas door displays – they’re going to hate what I planned for this year | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed the touching reason she creates extravagant Christmas displays outside her house – and hit back at “petty” neighbours who moan that the decs “over the top”.

Hannah Cox says her front door display will be “even bigger” this year to further annoy disgruntled neighbours. 

The 31-year-old uses the extreme displays as a chance to raise money for charity and doesn’t care that trolls think she is wasting money and materials.

Hannah received backlash from her neighbours and trolls on social media last year for the show-stopping Nutcracker scene at her front door in Somerset.

“I know at least one household on my road doesn’t like my decorations but that just makes me want to do it more,” she says.

“Only three houses on the street can actually see my door as we're at the end of the road, so I feel they are being a little petty.

“Christmas is meant to be magical and fun.”

To bite back at neighbours, Hannah planned to do a Grinch “comeback” display, but has instead settled for a gingerbread house theme this year.

“I wanted to do the Grinch as a comeback,” she says. “I’m quite stubborn and wanted to do it just a personal joke but my idea now is a Christmas gingerbread bakery.

“I’m contemplating painting the door brown, like a cookie, but not sure if this is too much – I’ll decide soon.

“I want the display to be even bigger this year.

“It’s not to everyone’s taste but I put in a lot of effort to make it look super festive and fun.”

Last year, the professional wreath-maker spent just under £700 dolling up her door, including a giant six-foot nutcracker at £250 and a jolly arch for £435.

After spending five hours assembling the display, Hannah, who has nearly 55k followers on her Instagram account @artificialhannah, was left bemused by her neighbours’ comments.

“When they knocked on the door, they asked what the display was and why I was doing it,” she recalls.

“It was along the lines of ‘it’s a bit over the top’.”

Previous displays have included spring flowers and a pumpkin spice theme.

Hannah is also hitting back at people saying she wastes money and materials with her extreme decorations.

“The 2022 Nutcracker was raffled off to charity and the proceeds went to a Somerset cancer equipment charity,” she says. “All my odd flowers get donated to children’s craft clubs as well.

“I always give back to the community after a big display.

“I just like to be different with decorating, it works great for advertising what I can do. I make the designs up In my head and change the door colour every year.
