Leaves have fallen, temperatures have dropped, and the enchanting spirit of Christmas is in the air. Get ready to be mesmerized as the 2023 Christmas Fantasy House opens its doors, showcasing a magical wonderland of holiday decor. This beloved holiday tradition in the greater Milwaukee area has been captivating families for 30 years, and this year promises to be the most spectacular one yet.

A Christmas Wonderland Created by Local Decorators

The 9,000-square-foot Delafield home, owned by Alan and Laura Swan, has been transformed into a mesmerizing Christmas wonderland by a team of talented area decorators. With over 24 rooms, an in-ground pool, and a sports court set on a picturesque cul-de-sac, this charming family home is the perfect backdrop for holiday enchantment.

Gail Johnson, decorator chairperson for the event, expressed her excitement about the Swans' generosity in supporting the Ronald McDonald House. She emphasized the importance of giving back to the community and creating a safe haven for families in need.

Explore the first floor, which features a dining room, great room with a fireplace, kitchen, and more. Upstairs, you'll find the primary bedroom, three additional bedrooms, and a playroom/craft room for the Swan's children. The lower level offers a rec room, exercise room, bar, and a guest bedroom and bathroom.

Support a Worthy Cause

The 2023 Christmas Fantasy House is not just about festive decorations and holiday cheer; it's also a charitable event that aims to make a difference. All proceeds from the event will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families with children in need of medical treatment away from home. Over the past 30 years, the event has raised an impressive $3 million for the American Cancer Society and Ronald McDonald House Charities. By attending this enchanting event, you too can contribute to this noble cause.
