Mr Milmine has been erecting elaborate displays for more than a decade and said people usually started asking him in October when he was going to start putting them up.
The display at his Braeside home has become an important part of the family’s yearly festivities.
It all started when the glow of one of his displays caught the eye of his daughter, he said.
"Years ago I had one light display in my window and my daughter asked if people were going to come and have a look.
His preference was to buy the decorations on special at the end of each year to stock up for the next.
This year’s highlights included reindeer flickering atop the roof and inflatable characters lining the driveway.
His displays had become quite the family tradition, with his other daughter following in his footsteps and decorating her own home, Mr Milmine said.
