Jeff Keener, a private citizen, decorates his home and his one-and-a-half acre lot with over 100,000 lights and decorations for onlookers to enjoy. Certainly a must-see destination, the Keeners take donations that help fund the Ben Towne Foundation for pediatric cancer research. 

2. Woodinville Wonderland: 23620 NE 183rd Street, Woodinville, WA. Another personal project by Woodinville residents, Mark and Tracy Zembruski, the Woodinville Wonderland has more than 100,000 lights in a display that includes Santa, Snoopy, and more. They also broadcast Christmas Carols that sync to the lights show. Donations are collected to benefit the Special Olympics. 

3. Country Village Shops: 23718 Bothell Everett Highway, Bothell, WA 98021. This local shopping area has holiday events all month. They have live reindeer all season, as well as a Santa's workshop where you can take photos of your little ones. This weekend (December 20-21, 2014 from 12:00-3:00) you can meet Frosty the Snowman and his friend, Hippity Hop the rabbit. There will also be a magic show and a winter craft project. On top of that, there is a little train ride for the kids, and you can buy a Christmas Tree from their lot. 

4. Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship Festival: This annual Pacific Northwest festival has been going on since 1949. The fully lit Argosy Christmas Ship sails to different Puget Sound communities on the water. Choirs on board sing and the carols are broadcasted from the ship. The Ship sails from the Kirkland City Dock from December 19 - December 23. Viewing locations can be found on their website.
