Christmas Light Display

Established in 2015 as a stand-alone Christmas Light Show, our Burlington Christmas Light House has now morphed into a holiday fantasy of lights during the winter holiday season! 

So whether you are checking out displays in Milton, Hamilton, Mississauga, or Oakville, or simply want something to check out around the GTA, be sure to come to see the Rusty Griswold Light Display and enjoy our dancing lights of Christmas this year in 2022.

Who is Rusty Griswold?

Hi there.  I’m Mike M., and I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.  Like many others, I am also inspired by the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  By building my Christmas light display each year, I try to recapture the excitement and magic of Christmas morning for kids.  Now as an older kid, I’m sharing my enthusiasm for the season through Christmas lights.  Although my display pales in comparison to other productions, I’m quite proud of what the Rusty Griswold Light Display has become during the Christmas season, and that is why I have chosen the pseudonym of Rusty Griswold.

History of the Ugly Christmas Sweater (From 1950s to Today)

Showing up at a holiday party donning our best ugly Christmas sweater has become a tradition. It’s as popular as putting up a Christmas tree, watching cult-classic Christmas movies, and listening to Christmas songs.
