The “Wish Upon a Star” display from the McLean family returns in Langley this year. Formerly in Surrey, the display is now in Langley at 20681 44th Ave., running from now until Dec. 31 from 5 p.m. to midnight. Check out more than 44,000 lights with many animated characters, an interactive musical snowman, as well and Santa and his sleigh flying overhead. Sip hot chocolate and watch a classic Christmas movie. Santa himself will visit on Dec. 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. Donations will be accepted for BC Children’s Hospital.

The Bonneteaus, a Cloverdale family at 16951 Jersey Dr., Surrey (169th St. and 60th Ave.), is holding their annual “Winter Wonderland Christmas” display. Everyone is welcome to come. “Donations gratefully accepted for the Surrey Memorial Hospital NICU.” Lights are on from about 5:30 to 10 p.m. daily.

The Wagner family will be lighting things up until Jan. 1 at 19056 63B Ave., Surrey. “Lights are set to music,” Karen Wagner tells the Now-Leader. “The music program is 30 minutes long at starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs every hour with the last show ending at 9:30 p.m. All neighbors have participated with outstanding displays.” Hot chocolate and candy canes are handed out to kids on weekends. Like previous years, the family will be raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event. The money is raised in honour of Karen Wagner’s father who died of cancer many years ago. The family also lost a friend named Eleanor to the disease. “We remember those we lost but also remember those going through treatment currently,” said Karen in an email. “The lights bring us and everyone much enjoyment and so we look to a great turnout this year.”

“My parents have been putting on an epic Christmas lights display at my childhood home, 8421 Spenser Pl., Surrey, for as long as I can remember,” Jason Peterson tells the Now-Leader. “My dad somehow manages to find things to add to it every year. In recent years he has started putting overflow decorations on multiple other houses in the cul de sac. Definitely worth checking out.”

Melissa Munroe told us about a snazzy display at the corner of 165th Street and 63B Avenue in Surrey.

A home at 7311 194th St., Surrey is a treasure that used to be located in North Vancouver. “My husband has been doing his display for 30 years. We moved out here six years ago and have been doing it here ever since. Every year we change things up by adding new things,” says wife Deanna Murray. “He takes pride in his decorations and loves to see the families walking at night and enjoying the lights. As he says: ‘If I can make one person happy, I have done a good job.’” This year the big man himself will be out front to greet families on select Saturdays and Sundays.

The Fletcher family’s Rudolph & Friends Christmas Lights display is back again this year at 15499 22nd Ave. in South Surrey. Leslea Fletcher-Ferris’ parents Ken and Bonnie have put on the display for more than 20 years. Leslea says although they’re downsizing this year, “they will still put a display on while they continue to downsize (not sure if they know how to do this, haha). They do the display out of the pure happiness it brings to the visitors! We love seeing the smiles, hearing the awes, and fielding the questions from all ages!” The family has collected thousands of dollars in donations for the Sources Food Bank over the years and hope to have more visitors than ever this Christmas. They now have a Facebook page at facebook.com/Rudolphandfriendslightdisplay.

Art & Lou’s Christmas Lights at 15097 90A Ave., Surrey is on now through to Jan. 1 from 6 to 10 p.m. nightly. “You may walk through or just drive past to enjoy the over 10,000 lights,” says Marylou Simmons. “Bring the kids and see the North Pole right here in Surrey! Also take in the Nativity scene.” Santa and friends will be visiting on Dec. 23 between 6 and 9 p.m. “There will be candy canes for the kids and coffee for the grownups. So why not bring your camera and have some fun,” says Simmons.

A house at 18279 Claytonwood Cres., Surrey boasts a Christmas display featuring thousands of lights. Marilyn Flathen tells us the lights are usually on between 5 and 9:30 p.m. nightly.

We hear a house is decked out at the corner of 180th Street and 58A Avenue in Surrey.

Christmas in Williams Park, Langley: From 5:30 to 9 p.m. daily until Dec. 15, drive through the decorated park at 238th Street and 68th Avenue. Free but donations accepted to help cover costs.

Redwoods Golf Course, Langley: Stop by 22011 88th Ave. to see the 21-foot tall, custom built tree in blue and white that shines in memory of course founder Larry Hope through the holiday season.

Some lights and decorations have been put up on a monkey puzzle tree at 4327 210A St., Langley

Drive past 200th Street on 56th Avenue in Langley to see a twinkling light display.

There are lots of lights to see at 5919 Briarwood Cres., Delta.

The force is strong at 6135 Sunwood Dr., Delta. Say hi to Yoda and friends while you check out their display. There’s another cool display on the same street, at 6095 Sunwood Dr.

Check out two cool light displays on Minster Drive in Delta (7358 Minster Dr. and 7548 Minster Dr.)

Christine Sandra says the best display in North Delta is at the corner of 115A Street and 86A Avenue, Delta.

There’s apparently a display you can walk through at 118th Street and 91st Avenue in Delta.
