Some friends jokingly call her Mrs Claus, but it is a title one Wagga woman happily wears every Christmas.
Anne Pankhurst loves bringing the festive season into her home every year.
"I love Christmas because it is in my blood," she said.
"My father would always come into the house with the biggest tree, so all my Christmases was brought about him and by his excitement."
Mrs Pankhurst has been building her collection of Christmas decorations for years as she has moved around the world.
She first started in America at the suggestion of a friend, and from there the stock of Santas, angels and glittering stars grew.
Mrs Pankhurst sticks to the theme of "dreaming of a white Christmas", to bring a little bit of her home country to Wagga.
"I grew up with snow at Christmas time, but I can't have the snow, so I try to recreate that feeling that I had as a kid," she said.
"I love my tree, but I also love all the different little exhibitions that I have over the house because each of them has a meaning to me."
While the present-giving and decorating and bring so much joy to Mrs Pankhurst, she encourages her fellow residents to remember the meaning of Christmas.
"People need to stop and think about what is important to them," she said.
"There are also a lot of people who are alone at this time of year, so remember that a smile or a hug can make all the difference to someone at this time of year."
