VIDEO: Check out Vernon’s Christmas lights display from home

Photos of approximately 20 homes turned into a video for all to enjoy

You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to take in a tour of Vernon’s best dressed Christmas displays.

Resident Gordon Cole has made a video with photos of approximately 20 homes. The homes are part of Vernon Realtor John Christmas’ annual list (available at johnchristmaseveryday.com).

Cole’s 20th Avenue home made John Christmas’ list of best decorated homes.

While his display is impressive, his efforts to put together the video are greatly appreciated.

“This is especially great for those persons who can’t get out to observe the lights,” Rose Pembleton-Carson said in a comment on the video, posted on the Hell Yeah Vernon Facebook group. “It seems more people are decorating this year, could it be because of COVID or the milder weather, who cares…..it’s great. Thanks.”

Cole’s display has even caught the attention of a neighbour, who wants to use it for a prank film with his film crew.

“They’re going to pretend to steal my decorations and I will be chasing the guys down the street with my RC truck. it will be funny and amazing,” said Cole.
