WEST SEATTLE HOLIDAYS: Menashe Family sets the date

After a somewhat subdued display in 2020, the Menashe Family Lights will be brighter this year. We stopped by the house in the 5600 block of Beach Drive today and found work already under way in and around the house’s front yard and trees. Josh Menashe tells WSB that they’re expecting to flip the switch on West Seattle’s brightest lights on December 2nd. As noted in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide, Santa will be back this year for photos – 6 pm-10 pm Saturday, December 11th (bring donations for the West Seattle Food Bank).

NOVEMBER 26 NOTE: Though the display appears to still have some finishing touches missing, many of the lights are on, we noticed while passing through the area tonight.

    Always a spectacular display that attracts many, and both the display and spectators grow each year.I am hoping that there will be some sort of traffic/pedestrian control at the property, combined with signage warning drivers of the display, before approaching the property. This road is well travelled and with the excitement of the display, (especially the little ones), people are paying less attention to the traffic. People are difficult to see at night and the bright lights of the display create a distraction.  A lot of people park across the street and cross the busy street to see the display close-up.I would hate to see an otherwise beloved holiday event turn tragic.

      Lori and Writer of West Seattle Blog,Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Grateful 🙏 WSB”Somewhat subdued” is not a nice thing to say. 2020 was Covid the display takes man power. So please be Positive, Be kinder and think about how generous the Menasha Family are. Realize the man power it takes for the display. Lori, Good Vibes only♡.Please stop, with the “Crowd Control”. Look on the bright side, It is once a year! The display is beautiful to see, &  our entire community for near and afar gathering together is awesome & a Blessing. Bring your canned food for the less fortunate. Be Grateful for our beautiful kind giving  Menasha family doing great work in the community.  I love the crowd, meeting my neighbors and happy families  interacting on Beach Drive. The light display is so much work, beautiful work for all our families to see. So, focus on how Joyous, Happy and grounded the display makes everyone. The crowd or traffic it is short term  once a year. Remember with all the Negativity, Racism, Crime, and so many sick and homeless in Seattle, I salute and love our beautiful Menashe Family for putting happiness in our hearts. I love the display and have many postcards and photos, it has become a tradition for my family to take photos. God Bless Everyine and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone♡Mag

    Thank you, Jack and Linda, and Menashe family for this extraordinary adventure.  Bringing my mother to enjoy it firsthand was one of the last times I was able to have her joyful face with me.            I’m forever grateful.

Sorry, comment time is over.
