There's an elaborate lights show at the Andruzzi family home at 7435 Pensacola Place, Gainesville.

In keeping with InsideNoVa tradition, we present our annual list of some of the area’s most popular neighborhood Christmas light displays.

This holiday season, we have to bid farewell to one longtime, favorite local display – Anderson’s North Pole in Woodbridge.

After more than 20 years of transforming their property off Cardinal Drive into a winter wonderland that drew more than 5,000 people each season, the Anderson family has decided to hang up the lights this year and retire.

But never fear, there are still plenty of family displays across Northern Virginia. Some are set to music, some are collecting for food banks and some might have the biggest inflatables you’ve ever seen. Grab a thermos of hot chocolate and hit the road!
