Because the weeks leading up to Christmas had been rainy, we finally went to see Christmas lights this week. We checked out "Candy Cane Lane," which comprises of a street of houses in the Ravenna neighborhood just north of the University of Washington. The neighborhood has come together for this annual Christmas spectacle since 1949.
The Keener's Christmas Lights Display is awesome. As we drove through a dark and quiet neighborhood, we grew increasingly doubtful that we were in the right place. Just as I was about to suggest turning back, we came upon this giant mass of lights:
Keener's Christmas Lights in Bothell
There are many great things about the Keener's display, such as the U-shaped driveway that perfectly facilitates traffic and allows for different views of the lawn. But more importantly, the drive behind this annual technical feat is very commendable. They accept donations for the Ben Towne Foundation for childhood cancer research and for Hopelink, and the Keener's match the donations to the Ben Towne Foundation!
