PHOTOS: First night of Menashe Family Christmas Lights. See what’s new for 2015.

It’s a dark and foggy night – except in the 5600 block of Beach Drive SW, where the Menashe Family Christmas Lights are officially on, shining bright, with visitors already flocking to see them. “How many lights do you have?” one person asked Josh Menashe; no official count, he cheerily replied.

Here’s what’s new: He and the rest of the crew were working on the finishing touches of an electric train and village you’ll see on the north side of the yard:

Along the sidewalk, you’ll see these candy-cane streetlight-style fixtures:

Santa’s balloon is new:

As bright and colorful as photos can be, you’ll just have to go see it for yourself.

You can bring a letter for Santa, too.

And Santa himself will in fact be here the night of Saturday, December 12th, 6 to 10 pm, as listed in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide – bring a donation for the West Seattle Food Bank and get a photo with Santa under the lights.

Haven’t been? Here’s a map.

    Thank you, Menashe’s! The display is beautiful and visiting it every year has become a tradition our family looks forward to. It is magical!!

    Thanks Menashe family! My kids smile wider, each day that we drive past (taking them to school) because of your efforts. When they see it at night I’m sure their minds will be blown even more. : )

    I’ve biked by your place almost every day this month and have enjoyed seeing this light spectacular go up. Nicely done!

    Great job Josh and crew.

    love the lights but may I make one teeny suggestion?: This is a celebration of the birth of Christ and, I think, there are no crosses in the traditional display because that stuff comes later in the story.

    We love seeing this every year. What a great part of the West Seattle character!
