Last hurrah for Saanich man’s “Christmasland” display


Originally, Don Moore decorated his basement extravagantly because his vision-impaired son responded well to the lights. “Christmasland” also provided Moore with an opportunity to raise money for Greater Victoria charities.

For the past seven of those years, Moore has invited the public into his Saanich home to take in his handiwork – in exchange for a donation to a designated charity.
