The holiday season has arrived in full force and amid the ongoing global pandemic, Vancouver Islanders have been seemingly more eager than ever to piece together bigger and brighter Christmas displays this season.
As a way to share some of the picturesque displays from around Vancouver Island and spread the holiday cheer, we’ve reached out to our CHEK viewer community and rounded up a collection of holiday-themed photos!
Introducing the 2020 CHEK Light Up collection.
In a year where residents are limiting their non-essential travel and not visiting different locations to take in the dazzling lights, let us bring the illumination to you virtually.
CHEK will be looking to feature photographs of light displays on a routine basis on both our website and our broadcast. The photographs below have been submitted to CHEK News by viewers.

Just because we don’t live in the tropics doesn’t mean we can’t make Christmas palm trees.

With a chimney this well lit, Santa will have no problem.

A little known fact is that the Polar Express actually has a stop in Nanaimo.

Some icicle lights brightly illuminating the streets of Central Saanich.

A photo captured in 2019, however, these uniquely decorated festive boats are worth sharing.
