Lights, displays decorate homes for the holidays - Shane Gibson photo. - Gordon Macpherson and his wife Kathie’s amazing light display located at 29814 Marhill Circle in Temecula won second place in the City of Temecula’s Christmas Light Contest for the Griswold style category. Since 1989, the Macpherson’s have been showing off their great display for the community. Hand cut, carved, and painted decorations cover their entire home. A glass display of Santa’s workshop and an estimated 25,000 lights make this masterpiece unique. Regarding the visitors who come to see his display, Gordon Macpherson says, “Just seeing people’s smiling faces makes it all worth while.” Visitors are welcome in the backyard where more decorations can be seen. The Macpherson’s neighbors also join in on the decorating. Visitors who come by will see a group of Christmas trees in the backyard that were decorated by their neighbors and named by those who did the decorating during a holiday get-together at their home. From now through Christmas, families are encouraged to drop by and see this display where Santa may be present to greet visitors.
