Frosty is melting in the bathtub and other decorations are
spilling out of a Mosgiel house this Christmas.
Its residents want more Dunedin households to get decorating.
Nicola Merrett (39) said she had long decorated the inside of
her house at Christmas but this was the first year her family
had decorated the outside.
She and her husband Jason and sons Blake (12) and Logan (9)
had enjoyed other outdoor Christmas decorations in Dunedin
suburbs in past years and decided to decorate, inside and
out, for four nights earlier this month.
Inside, Frosty the snowman, made by Mrs Merrett with white
fluffy material and beach balls, basks in the bathtub.
The neighbours had decorated their outdoors area and warned
the Merretts to watch out for more next year, Mrs Merrett
All houses should get in the spirit and decorate outdoors,
''Come on, Dunedin. Do a bit more next year.''
