West Seattle Christmas lights: Side show in Highland Park

December 11, 2011 at 9:14 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle Christmas lights, West Seattle news | 6 Comments

No LEDs in view; the lights of Christmas past still deck this little home in Highland Park. It is tonight’s featured display, thanks to a tip from Tiffany. This view is the “side show” – the side of the house, plus its back yard, seen from SW Barton, where the home faces 10th (its front is brightly lit too, but not as wide). There are multiple groupings of Nativity-scene figures, as well as Santa, Frosty, and the other secular Christmas classics:

We’re just shooting from the roadside; go see for yourself, to get a closer look and really appreciate the collection here. We’ve added this home to our new map of all the Christmas lights we’ve featured so far – the map’s on our West Seattle Holidays page, or directly reachable via Google Maps here. Got a bright-lights tip? editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks!


  1. This is the only annual lighting I have taken in since the Gais have moved on. Pure of heart, this collector is a West Seattle treasure. Retro Christmas here!

  2. We always go see this one as well. There are usually dolls in the front windows also.

  3. Yes! This is commonly known in the neighborhood as “The Doll House”. It’s a wonderful Christmas display, but come back in January, February, March, April, etc. Then tell us what you think.
    We love Dale!!

  4. Yes, its like a toy shop. The windows ate open to viewing and the dolls ate everywhere.

  5. Yeah come back in July when all the dolls are still there, looking out the window at you, wearing swimsuits.
