Alex Dourov When my family moved to Livermore in 1992, we relied on newspaper listings to find local homes decorated with Christmas lights. The local newspaper was helpful but many times we would get lost or stumble on a "stinker".  photo: Alex Dourov

So, I created a searchable database of confirmed and verified Christmas light displays so that everyone could avoid disappointing wild goose chases based on bad information. LightsOfTheValley.com was published on December 11, 1999. Due to expansion, its now called CaliforniaChristmasLights.com

NOTE: The California Christmas Lights site always "Closes" on New Years Day.
The site will "Open" again on the Friday After Thanksgiving Day!
