"When we bought and renovated our house on Vancouver's Trinity Street in the summer/fall of 2003, we had no idea about Trinity's reputation for amazing Christmas lights and displays," says designer Shelley Penner. "It only dawned on me when I was putting up our lights outside the first year. I noticed one of the strings of lights I had was no longer working, and within minutes, our neighbour across the street (a.k.a. the Trinity Street Christmas lights organizer) kindly offered a string she was not using to ensure our display was balanced."
