Welcome to Christmas in Chino!
Updated December 2011 -
Unfortunately, we won't be doing the Animated Christmas Lights like we have done for the past 5 years for Christmas 2011. As a family, we talked quite a bit about the costs involved to store the Christmas Lights for another year (at close to $200 per month) and the commitment needed to put the lights up and we just couldn't do it this year. We still put up a bunch of lights and the house looks really pretty! But the lights aren't animated to music. ...If you're still looking for an evening of fun with your family looking at Christmas Lights, you can find other neighborhoods in the local area that are full of lights by looking at the directions below! :)
Below is a post we made last December seeking help storing our Christmas Lights for the offseason so we could do the lights again this year. Unfortunately, no one offered to help out so we began selling off some of the Christmas Lights in April. We posted them online and a nice gentleman drove all the way from Arizona (10 hours round trip!) to purchase and pick up some of the lights! We hope they are making children and adults alike are enjoying our lights in Arizona! :)
We hope you have a Merry Christmas!

We need your help!
We need to find a place to store all of our Christmas decorations from January until late October this next year so we can put up the lights next Christmas! In years past we have stored all of our Christmas decorations at our house and in a storage unit we personally pay for. Unfortunately, we don't want to have to pay for another storage unit this year as it ends up costing us between $150-$200 per month.
So here's where you come in! If you know of anyone in the area that owns a commercial building that has a little bit of extra room in the corner of their building that they aren't using and would be willing to let us store boxes of lights and Christmas trees in , we would be very greatful if you could put them in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk about possibly storing them at their warehouse and/or business.
We need about 200 square feet (10' x 20') to store our lights and decorations. Even if you only have 100 square feet (10' x 10') available, anything would help and it would allow us to put the lights back up next year! Basically, we would need to access your business (while you are there of course) one day in January to drop off and store/stack all of the lights) and then once in late October/Early November to pick up all of the lights we dropped off in January.
***Unfortunately, if we don't find a place to store the Christmas lights this year, we will sadly not be able to do the display next year and will begin selling a bunch of items in January when we begin taking down the lights. So again, if you own a business with some free space in a corner or know of someone that does, we would greatly appreciate you getting in contact with us at email@example.com!***
Hi! Thanks for stopping by. We created this website to help spread the Christmas spirit and to help make it easier for those in our local community to share our lights with their friends and family! Hopefully our lights will help get you in the Holiday spirit.
Magic Happens Here.
Happy Holidays! It's hard to believe another Christmas is almost here! We are diligently working on putting up the lights this year and hope to have them up and running by December 4th!
There is a chance it may take us a bit longer to get the lights up though, so please check back here before driving over to see if they are on!
We look forward to seeing you here! If you are looking for other places to visit lights in Southern California (like Rancho Cucamonga, Pasadena, Brea or anywhere else, we have some loactions posted on the left under the "See More Lights" link. :)
Pay it Forward 2010
For the 2010 Holiday Season, we are going to be collecting toys on behalf of the Marine Corp's "Toys for Tots" foundation. We are going to have a donation box/present set up in the driveway for the duration of the season and hope that you will consider helping make a less fortunate child's Christmas a little brighter this year! We'll keep a running total of the number of toys donated each night on the website and really hope to hit at least 100 toys donated before the end of the season! :) Any new & unwrapped toy donation you can make will be greatly appreciated!
If you would like to drop off a toy at another location, you can check the Marine Corp's official site (Click Here) for other drop off locations in the area. Note: Our location is the one currently at the top of the drop off list (for Chino, CA).
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you this December!
