The Place to be: Christmas greetings are all around Robinson Place, such as this home wishing everyone the best of the season to go with a couple grazing animals and a great Christmas tree in the window. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

Elegant lighting: This Robinson Place home is another go-to Christmas light display with the spectacular tree and brightly lit up bushes. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

Playful scene - One of the homes which brings out the ‘fun’ in its display, located along 54 St., showcases a number of different air-filled decorations to go along with lighted structures laid out nicely.

Afraid of the cold? Given the extremely cold temperatures, a lot of people can relate to this snowman’s look out in front of this home at the corner of 54 St. and 55 Ave. and hopefully he’s not scared of the way the lights make him look. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

Main Street lights: This home is one of several wonderfully decorative locations on 50 St. with this one including both inside and outside lighted items that brighten up the house and yard. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

Winter showcase: A home on 50 St. makes great use of the structures in its yard and lighting them up to bring out the wonderfulness of winter and Christmas. Photo by Jordie Dwyer

Christmas corner - Driving by this home at 50 St. and 48 Ave. is always a pleasure at this time of year, as the yard demonstrates all of the season’s spirit with a large lighted display and numerous snowmen, animals and the odd penguin. Photos by Jordie Dwyer
