The warm spirit of Christmas is burning brightly at a host of local homes that are all decked out for the holidays.

Here’s a list of displays within easy driving distance for Cloverdale Reporter readers:

Cloverdale’s Kinna family (Jay, Diane, Wyatt and Nash) is once again welcoming visitors to their annual display at 16956 60A Ave. as part of efforts to raise money for the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation. Last year, their efforts raised $8,138 for the foundation, their best campaign ever.

Donations will be collected this year in support of SMH’s neonatal intensive care unit.

The Lagerstroms (Dan, Cindy and Kyle) at 15466 91A Ave. in Fleetwood are also using their amazing light display in aid of a worthy cause – Camp Goodtimes, a cancer charity.

This is their ninth year in a row putting on their gigantic display at 15466 91A Ave.

“We got bit by the Christmas light bug,” Dan Lagerstrom explains on the website devoted to their display (lightup.ca), which offers helpful advice to anyone who might like to follow in their brightly-lit footsteps.

The Lagerstrom’s 2010 display uses more than 45,000 lights, 8 km of wire, and 1,031 feet of garlands. It took 10 helpers 150 hours to set it all up.

Their lights will be on until Jan. 1, 2011. The display features music. To listen, turn to 102.1 FM.

The Haggarty Christmas House at 15659 93A Avenue has nearly 15,000 lights, including toy soldiers, candlesticks, lit trees, and Santa and his reindeer, who dance to music. From 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. nightly.

Donations accepted on behalf of B.C. Children’s Hospital.

The Land of Christmas display at 20169 32 Ave. in Langley features a three-storey castle and 30,000 lights. Just around the corner is another large display at 2983 202 Street.

One of the biggest annual displays around is Listen to the Lights at 4732 207A Street in Langley, featuring more than 120,000 lights and a computer-controlled light show synchronized to music from the Trans Siberian Orchestra, Bruce Broughton Orchestra, Sinead O’Connor and more. Tune in to 107.7 FM to listen.
