Christmas lights tour mapped out by Vernon Realtor

More than 20 of the community’s best-lit houses make up annual tradition

A man who literally embodies the spirit of Christmas and lighting up the holiday season for the community.

John Christmas (yes, that is his real name) thought this year especially needed added joy. Therefore he is bringing back the annual Christmas Light Tour, thanks an increased demand and help from the community to list the best-decorated premises.

“Last year I decided to compile the community’s best lit houses into an easy-to-follow tour. Thanks to your positive feedback, the tour is making a return,” the Vernon Realtor said.

“This list was handpicked for the 2020 season to include my family’s favourite holiday houses and will lead you past many noteworthy homes along the way. So, get your warm beverages, favourite Christmas snacks and follow the list below.”

He outlines a few notable locations, including 3904 25th St.

“National Lampoons and A Christmas Story collide in this stunner,” Christmas said.

Residents in the 6000 block of Longacre Drive appear to be having a light off. So are those on 34th Street.

Over at 3408 20th Ave., a young display artist has a great start to his Christmas set up.

“I look forward to seeing this collection grow as he has some new additions already.”
