If you had to choose just one West Seattle neighborhood to visit for Christmas lights sightseeing, Fauntlee Hills would be a good choice. That’s where we started the season – and that coverage-launching display’s creator, Ken Arkills, points us again this year to a nearby home that also shines bright, at 40th/Donovan [map]:

Ken says Joey and Myung Haugen are the creators here, with a giant star among its features. “They are really into it and I am so happy to see a lot of fellow West Seattleites really going all out this year with their displays!” We’ve shown more than two dozen this season and we’re not done yet – keep the suggestions (with or without photos) coming, via westseattleblog@gmail.com. You can browse everything we’ve shown by going to this WSB archive; they’re also listed in our West Seattle Holiday Guide.

    While these lights are pretty, and I do enjoy the creative and bright holiday displays, can’t help wondering and feeling uneasy about the impacts to the environment, of all the ‘stuff’ involved with human holiday displays. All of the lights, inflatable figures, and plastic crap that will eventually end up in the trash, constipating the earth. Anyone else?
