West Seattle Christmas lights: Menashe Family display officially on

December 1, 2011 at 6:42 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle Christmas lights, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

It’s been a work in progress for days (here’s our report from last Monday), and finishing touches were happening up till the last moment – but as of just before 6 pm, the Menashe Family‘s famous Christmas-light display in the 5600 block of Beach Drive SW is shining bright. As you’ll hear – or not hear! – in our video, there was no countdown, no fanfare, just the pulling of the switch – and on they went. Here’s a closer look at the lights in HD:

(Two years ago, a cable TV crew filmed the lighting for “Invasion of the Christmas Lights 2,” which premiered on TLC last year and will be rerun this Saturday.)


  1. Must be nice to literally have money to burn. What a massive waste.
