Christmas Light Shows

The holiday season is full of Christmas ornaments and sparkling lights that bring lots of colour to a landscape full of white snow and bare trees. Some go all out on the displays, both inside and outside, and some take it to the next level using computers and tens of thousands of lights. Often these wizards of light also help raise money for charity.

Neighbours may have to put up with a lot more traffic as thousands of visitors come by in the night over the many weeks leading up to Christmas. And people usually do this for a number of years, gradually building up the number of lights over time and adding music played on outdoor speakers or even over the FM radio bands. I remember seeing a picture once of a dazzling display and the neighbour put up a set of lights that spelled out 'ditto' with an arrow pointing to the adjacent well lit house.
We found a couple in the GTA, including the Lamberts Lights, photos at top, (104.9 FM on your radio) which has raised money for the Georgetown Hospital Foundation. Take a drive around your area and keep an eye open for a glowing sky to help point you in the right direction.
