West Seattle Christmas lights: Not always about the brightness

We had set out to check an Admiral District tip “around 37th/Hanford” but might have been too early – didn’t see the lights in question. However, we found these two homes nearby, at Belvidere/Hanford, and though neither is completely awash in lights, each had a distinctive feature – the luminarias above, and the non-plastic, non-inflatable creche scene below:

We’ve added that corner to the WSB West Seattle Christmas Lights map – and will keep adding at least through Christmas Day; tips still welcome at editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks to everyone who’s helped so far (especially the display creators themselves!)

    hope you saw the cute display in 3200 block of 39th, life-size stuffed Santa on porch in rocker, waving; and stuffed animals on merry go round and ferris wheel, also moving; one of my favorites; also love the luminaria one you got in top pick, very close; been meaning to email you about these
    I can’t recall anything special at 37th/Hanford; that’s a block from me; maybe that was supposed to be 39th/Hanford, which is close to 3200 block of 39th
    there are tons of gorgeous light displays in Belvidere and north Admiral; I went light-seeing Sunday night for couple hours; lots of wonderful decorations; thank you West Seattle for decorating for my enjoyment

    Hurray for non-inflatable displays!

    There’s a SPECTACULAR light-hearted display on the west side of 32nd between Trenton and Cloverdale. Pink flamingo made of lights, a fir tree with another flamingo, and a ton of great lights.

    The creche brings to mind days from my youth back in Wisconsin. Beautifully, and tastefully, done. The “reason for the season”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
