Once the snow falls, the days shorten and Christmas time is upon us, it is always so much fun to drive around and take in all of the Christmas lights. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

We have put together a list of homes and neighbourhoods that go all out for the holidays. This list will grow as the lights continue to shine, so be sure to check back to find all the best spots. If you would like to be included in our list or know of a great place that should be shared, please let us know by sending an email. Click on each location to find the Google Maps link.
