West Seattle holidays: Merry Christmas (lights), Charlie Brown!

December 21, 2013 at 5:56 pm | In West Seattle Christmas lights, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Thinking of going out to look at Christmas lights tonight? Here’s another display listed on the WSB West Seattle Christmas Lights Map, the Rice home at 2128 47th SW. Finally got a chance to go by, just as it was starting to get dark – this is one that’s fun to see even before nightfall. As with most holiday displays, a quick photo doesn’t do it justice, so be sure to see it for yourself (especially if you are a “Charlie Brown Christmas” fan like your editor here). Speaking of the map, it continues to be findable on our Holiday Guide page or by direct Google Maps link, but here’s another look – click any tree icon for the corresponding address:

  1. Our family called the Fauntlee Hills lights “Candy Cane Lane” growing up, it was always a treat when Dad would drive us through to see the lights before catching a ferry home!

  2. Does anyone remember a house with the Charlie Brown Christmas characters with all their heads raised and singing like they do at the end of the movie. I think it was over near 36th by the Gai’s bakery family Christmas display. Anyone know if it’s still there?

  3. I’m not sure if they’re there or not anymore. Those figures were made by my neighbor, Walt, when I lived on 54th SW just south of Charleston. When Walt passed away (and his wife), his son inherited them…the son lived on 36th near the Gai’s. I’m thinking maybe they’ve moved now, not sure where. Always had a spot in my heart for those characters…even remember when one was stolen…and returned.
