The lights are brightly shining

We searched high and low for the most dazzling homes decorated for Christmas in the area, and found most of them just across the border of southern Mountain View.

The search began with a tip about several nicely decorated home on Sladky Avenue in Mountain View, but we were soon distracted by nearby Los Altos, first by a home on the west side of Springer Road near Cuesta Drive.

A detour off of Grant Road just north of Fremont Avenue led us to several nicely decorated homes on Ranchita Drive and Garthwick Drive.

The most dazzling home of all was off of Ranchita Drive on the 1500 block of Julie Lane, which was covered with numerous details to hold your attention: lights, figurines and even the sound of pleasant Christmas tunes playing from a speaker.

Have you pulled out the stops this year in decorating your house to dazzle your friends and neighbors? Readers can submit their own photos of decorated homes — and anything else Mountain View-related for that matter — online at
