â€™Tis the season for Christmas lights – and we want to see your best. Weâ€™ve had quite a few submissions, but we want to see them all! We asked you to send us photos of your decorated home â€“ along with your address, so others may enjoy them as well â€“ and here they are:
*Every night from 6 to 10 p.m. until Jan. 1 you may walk through or just drive past to enjoy the sights at 15097 90A Ave. There are over 10,000 lights as well as the North Pole and nativity scene. On Dec. 20 from 6 to 9 p.m. Santa and Frosty will be on site to visit with candy canes for the kids and coffee, hot chocolate for the grownups.
*Thousands of bulbs and dozens of ornaments go into an annual display at the Kinna familyâ€™s home in Cloverdale at 16956 60A Ave. From reindeer on the rooftop to penguins wearing bow ties, theyâ€™ve pretty much got it all. Now in its seventh year, the family is collecting donations for incubators for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Surrey Memorial Hospital. See the lights for yourself, Sunday to Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and extended hours until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, through to Jan. 4. And ask Jay for a candy cane – he likes handing them out.
*â€Journey of Christmasâ€ guided outdoor display. Take a walk through the woods to discover the story of the first Christmas as told in a multi-media presentation. Each of the nine outdoor theatres has mannequins, a mural, theatre props, lighting and an audio description. The path is lit up with hundreds of metres of lights. After your guided walk, you are welcome to stay for hot chocolate, cookies and on most evenings, live entertainment to brighten your Christmas season. Admission by donation.
