8. The Nevarez Family

The Christmas season is one of the biggest times of the entire year for Gilbert's Ray and Terri Nevarez as they dress up the exterior of their 3,451 square foot home with more than 70,000 lights. Even better, the couple stages elaborate and impressive-looking computer-controlled synchronized light shows set to well-known and cherished holiday songs, ranging from "Carol of the Bells" to José Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad."

Hours: Nightly from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends through January 2.

7. Allen and Beth Coughenour
If you happen to be a fan of classic holiday specials like A Charlie Brown Christmas or Rankin/Bass' Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, we're certain you'll dig the ginormous display created by this Glendale couple. Around 100,000 lights (mostly of the incandescent variety) garnish the property, as do numerous glowing plastic decorations dating back to the 1970s, when Allen Coughenour began collecting 'em. He's also accumulated dozens of Peanuts-themed wooden cutouts such as Snoopy and Woodstock. Santa Claus himself (or one of his countless doppelgangers) also visits on Friday and Saturdays.

Hours: From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. nightly through January 2.
