Want to see where all the best Christmas lights and decorated homes are in Burlington and Hamilton?

An interactive map produced by a local parenting website can take you there.

Active Parents provides a one-stop shop for family-oriented activities and advice through its website that focuses on Burlington, Hamilton and the surrounding area and the Christmas light list has become a tradition.

“(This year) marks the sixth year our map to the best decorated Christmas houses has been wowing families all over the region,” the introduction of the list reads.

According to Amber Rohal, owner of Active Parents, the popularity of the map took off during the pandemic when people were restricted in the ways they interacted.

“Parents were desperately looking for ways to enjoy Christmas events with kids and to be out in their community safely,” she said. “Walking or driving to see Christmas lights was a surefire way to have a fantastic time.”

Rohal said even though people are feeling more secure about gathering and socializing, the map is still popular with sightseers and homeowners willing to show off their lighting skills.

This year, in particular, Rohal said people have been busy with their decorations.

“The homeowners have amped up their decor game and we are getting many new entries for our map and gallery daily,” she told “Travelling around to see gorgeous Christmas lights will always be a time-honoured tradition because it’s free and fun for every age.”

The list is compiled by both the homeowners themselves or local decor fans who submit the photos and locations. The goal is to encourage people to drive by and see the decorations and acknowledge the efforts that go into the creation of the elaborate displays. The site also encourages people to submit photos.

There are three Burlington festive homes on the map and three in Hamilton, as well as Oakville, Milton and a few other locations.
