The butchart gardens offers 55 acres of beauty all year long.
From December 1st to January 6th they offer one of the best light shows ever...well for me anyways:)
This year 2010 is their 24th year of having the christmas light show.
Tens of thousand of lights illuminate the grounds and the theme is the Twelve days of Christmas.
