Holiday lights 2013

A list of home displays submitted by Spokesman-Review readers.

Deer Park/North County

Chattaroy charmer

This house is completely surrounded by a gazillion lights on all four sides plus trees and bushes in the yard. A delight to see!

Lights in the Country

Beautiful display in the country that circles the entire house. An elegant mix of multicolor lights in trees and groves of smaller spiral trees. Lots of depth to the display. Well worth the drive in the country. One of the biggest displays that I have seen anywhere in Spokane.

Liberty Lake/Otis Orchards


From a Nativity scene to Mike Wasowski (from “Monsters, Inc.,”) this house has 16,208 lights and something for everyone. Arches with candy canes line the driveway. There are light up dogs, a pond with a fish, deer and seals. Winnie the Pooh, Santa and his reindeer, horse and carriage, and who could forget the bulls-eye so Santa doesn’t miss stopping at this house. Much more, all set to music....

Timor Drive

Well decorated front yard includes light-up horse and sleigh, a snowman and presents.

North Idaho: Post Falls

The Meadows

My father takes great pride in putting up lights every year and has motivated others to get into the Christmas spirit in our neighborhood. His display makes me think of the Griswold's in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and that surge of power shooting straight up from the Luxor in Las Vegas. The whole display is centered in the front yard with a beautiful nativity set that my father created which reminds everyone what the real meaning of Christmas is. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Northwest Spokane

West Park Place

West Indiana Avenue

Holiday cheer year after year!

7020 N. Calispel St

The lights are hung by the gutters with care, in hopes that some passers-by soon will be there. The yard is guarded by the snowmen and soldiers, the manger is lit with the three wiseman, the carolers are singing outside the church and Santa's sleigh is filled with packages just waiting to be delivered. Come enjoy fantasyland if only for a few minutes, we are sure it will put a smile on the faces of the young and old. The music is charming, the scene is complete. Come by our home, we promise it's neat. Santa might even make a surprise visit to those who are nice, while those who are not had better think twice.

This house has a great selection of Christ,\mas themes. It also plays Christmas music.

Skating rink

The highlight is the 48-by-24-foot ice rink next to the Christmas tree. Lighted deer overlook the rink, and there are penguins and presents. Many evenings, the kids are skating on the rink. There are lights on the house with a snowman and candy canes.

SORRY, between early frozen ground a very bad case of bronchitis, I didn't get much done this year. It was impossible to put any hold-down stakes in the ground. Still got a few next to the house but that's about it. See you next year.

Whitehouse princess lane

Feel like a princess when you walk down the blue-lit lane. You will find Santa stuck in the chimney, with a big Joy sign next to him. Look around and you will see Santa waving at you!
Across the blue-lighted lane is the giant snowman family - they would love to sing to you, if they are not taking a break! The horse and carriage are taking presents to Grandma's house.
Watch out for the deer, they are feeding. On the side of the house is the reason for the season. Happy Holidays to you all!
