We ask you, our loyal Toasties, to vote on which ones you think are the most LIT. Here are the contenders for Week #1.

There's always that one neighbour who goes all out with their Christmas lights. It's the house that everyone around the block talks about. And passersby wonder: "How did they do that?" 🎄 In Surrey, the house that’s generating festive buzz belongs to Rodica and Gheorghe Grigore. 🎄 “I did this tree, I went up the ladder,” Rodica said. 🎄 She’s in her mid-sixties. 🎄 “Everybody who saw me said ‘Oh my god, you are crazy — you are a crazy old lady.” 🎄 But she’s proud of her handiwork: a display of about 140,000 lights. 🎄 “Doing things, you have to be exciting and crazy,” she said. 🎄 “The time is going so fast. We are not young anymore but you have think about it from your memories — let’s go back to our childhood.” 🎄 Photo by: The Early Edition’s @nathandurec #BrightLights #winter #surreybc #Christmas #christmasdecorations #exploreBC #winterwonderland #pnw #Christmaslights #cbcvancouver
